News Thousands of Dell PCs Are Vulnerable To Attacks Due to A Flawed Dell Driver

"The flaw, which requires physical access to a machine, could potentially affect hundreds of thousands of Dell systems. "

Nothing to see here for most of us to concern ourselves with.
Yeah, that kind of makes this largely a non-issue, at least for home users. If someone has physical access to your system, they might also reformat your hard drive and install a new OS for you while they are there. : P

This starts getting into a bunch of "scenarios" of if/then and is pointless to discuss further in that regard. For a large percentage of people using a computer they will never be a victim of such attacks because there is no point. IF you work at a location that it was tantamount that such was a real threat to your operation, you are already paying people to take care of the risk from multiple vectors.
