Description Adam Mariš 2015-09-15 05:58:23 EDT
A vulnerability in grub2 allowing users to load non-verified code, such as tools to circumvent Secure Boot was reported. The problem raised from introducing this commit:

Multiboot a multiboot2 modules remained built-in, that should not function on UEFI systems, but there is a prevention missing. Non-verified code can be loaded from boot menu if there's no password set, or in the config file if gained root privileges.

For reproducing the issue, see Bug #1262904.
