Submission + - Linus Torvalds Suggests How To Handle UEFI Secure Boot Crisis (

sfcrazy writes: In the ongoing discussing over Microsoft keys in the kernel, Linus Torvalds has made some suggestions which he believes put users in control of their system and not Microsoft. He says " a distro should sign its own modules AND NOTHING ELSE by default. And it damn well shouldn't allow any other modules to be loaded at all by default, because why the f*ck should it? And what the hell should a Microsoft signature have to do with *anything*?" You can read the entire post here, but his point was "Because it really shouldn't be about MS blessings, it should be about the *user* blessing kernel modules."
