A way to obtain name of BIOS chip is using flashrom
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install flashrom
flashrom -p internal -r backup.bin
During the process, name of chip should be displayed, if it is among 500+ known chips.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KNy-_ZzMnG0#t=10m43
Unfortunately it is not available for operating system I use,
but hopefully someone could mention name of the chip displayed.
One can also upload backup.bin to virustotal.com, if curious if there are any rootkits on his computer.
