The article says "has DMA access to the system" without really explaining what that means.
from the following lines:
- it can arbitrarily read and write to any memory or storage on the system - bypass disk encryption once it is unlocked - read and write to the screen - do all of this completely unlogged - send whatever it finds out to wherever it wants, encrypted or not.
i took that for an explanation. what is misleading/incorrect/missing?
I just meant it would've just helped to talk briefly about what DMA is.
