Default AMI firmware upgrade scare: The global security meltdown that wasn't

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/04...uefi_key_leak/

Quote:
A computer hardware maker that leaked the source code to American Megatrends Inc's PC firmware did not reveal private keys for signing firmware updates - contrary to early reports.

The blueprints for AMI's UEFI firmware were found by a security researcher on a wide-open Taiwanese FTP server along with what appeared to be sensitive code-signing keys.
