Hi,

Saw this on Phoronix:-
https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Ubuntu-17.10-BIOS-Corrupter

And Canonical has noted it here:-
https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Basically, 17.10 can possibly corrupt your BIOS firmware on certain
computers. See the above links for more info.

BW,


Ian
