[Sleeping Pill] funny sidequest ... race condition? #64
hi, i have a pansonic cf19mk6 with qm77 chipset and this is the story of how I was able to corrupt - and hopefully disable - my ME using fwupdlcl and the integrated programmer, so it may inspire future "research" (e.g. a one-click mecleaner.exe would be like totally friggin awesome).
Local FWUpdate: Enabled
behaviour for fwupdlcl with me_cleaned ME.bin
partially update OEM stock ME.bin
HIBERNATE, after being in Stage13 for 2-3 seconds ... last seen "50%" and Stage 14/19
^C Update: [ 0% (Stage: 0 of 19) (|)])]
RESUME, now see 0%, program hangs, so ctrl-c && hijack session with me_cleaned ME.bin
it directly jumps to Stage 13 35% ... cool?
FW Update: [ 100% (Stage: 19 of 19) (-)]
other oem strings @ panasonic pcinfo http://picpaste.com/diff-pcinfo.png
any suggestions for one of those hipster vulnerability names?
EDIT: Decided to call it "Sleeping Pill" as a homage to the much much more sophisticated Blue and Red Pills.
