I appreciate all the info I have gathered from this forum, but I'm a little concerned about flashing my system with a pre-modded BIOS. Is it possible that someone could insert additional code into the BIOS that could have trojan-like activities? For example, everything may look and run normally, but is it possible for someone to code a rootkit like program into the BIOS? And if so, wouldn't that escape detection from a virus scanner that tradtionally scans only the hard drives? Thanks for any input, I'm about to take the plunge, but this is the only nagging thought holding me back.
