Dell SupportAssist contained RCE flaw allowing miscreants to remotely reflash your BIOS with code of their creation


This is why it’s best to boot off a Windows thumb drive, delete all partitions and install Windows fresh the first time you turn it on. Oh, and don’t connect the network cable or WiFi until you’re at the desktop. Lenovo, HP, Dell, they’re all getting worse with the crapware again like they were in the late 90’s and Naughts.
