Two anonymous researchers, who identified themselves as “my123” and “Slipstream”, recently exposed a serious design flaw in Windows’ Secure Boot that allows people to open locked devices with a golden key. The researchers claim their published findings prove encryption backdoors can be exploited, and that the golden key demands by governments and investigators endangers the security of all users.

Microsoft lists the following Windows versions as affected: Windows 8.1 (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows RT 8.1, Windows 10 and Windows 10 build 1511 (both 32-bit and 64-bit), and Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 Server Core Installation.
