GRUB2 not documented in the Fedora Security Guide


I received a report that the Fedora Security Guide does not address GRUB2.  Yep, it doesn’t.  I’m hoping to update the text sooner than later and make it available to the masses.  Just wanted to put the word out there that hardening instructions for GRUB2 are not in the guide, yet.  That is all.

    The last time I looked at GRUB 2, it had a pretty powerful command line and no default password. You could view most files as if running as root.

    Probably ok for an isolated server bios screen, pretty dangerous for vms or laptops…
