A vulnerability has been
discovered in certain HP PC BIOS, which could allow for local arbitrary
code execution. The BIOS is a firmware which is used to provide runtime services
for operating systems and programs and to perform hardware initialization
during the booting process. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability
could allow for local arbitrary code execution with kernel level
privileges. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or
delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.
