Apple Bought The Company That Exposed Its Flawed Firmware

Apple's decision to buy the company that exposed its flawed firmware was a smart move. The group is now working towards improving firmware and software security.

All was quiet after the researchers' announcement, and for good reason: Apple purchased their security firm -- LegbaCore -- just two months after news of Thunderstrike 2 broke. According to the company's founder Xeno Kovah, the team is going to be working on "low-level security" at Apple, which we'll take as shorthand for making sure that OS X's firmware is less susceptible to attacks in the future.
