As I browse the internet, I find security news that I find interesting. Here is one such article:
Computrace software, which is enabled by default on millions of PCs, could allow attacker to remotely wipe the hard drive. Researchers described the "backdoor" in BIOS/UEFI, as well as how it can be exploited at Black Hat USA. Although the suggested threat mitigation is the deactive Computrace, that’s not always possible.
