Hi all

How important is it to have the newest BIOS/motherboards for security on my home network ? Throw away laptop or look into custom flash for security fixes if is needed ?
 
One thing for Dell laptops to have in mind: There is a way to get into BIOS with admin settings using only the Service Tag and not-too-hard-to-find generator utility. If this is your only security measure, think about using BitLocker (or similar) drive-encrypting technology.
