Re: The security folks will say...

Lets be real, if you have been compromised to the point where someone can log onto the management components of your storage array and run arbitrary commands then why on earth would the bother with CPU fiddling malware when they can simply export all your data and VM images and find all the written down passwords and embedded certificates at their leisure on a copy of your data.

To borrow a bit of Douglas Adams (RIP) it saves "all that tedious mucking about" with hacking embedded processors.
