I saw this and wondered if there were any repercussions for distros that use the Microsoft signing key?

It also highlights the issues with the UK governments Online Safety Bill and the EU Chat Control

Re: BlackLotus malware, Secure Boot and Windows machines

Oh I'm sure there is some boot malware that can bypass secure boot implementations.

What I am interested in the possibility to buy separate TPM module from 3mdeb.com and harden the boot process.

I have had some boot issues that were questionable. Secure boot seems to have corrected it with efi stub. But if it wasn't a dell I probably wouldn't of had to use it.
