This article (
) is from "Catalin Cimpanu for Zero Day | July 29, 2020"

The Ubuntu GRUB2 packages were fixed at "29 July 2020" (
https://ubuntu.com/security/notices/USN-4432-1 ).

"Eclypsium said it expects patching to take a long while, as fixing
bootloader bugs is usually a complex process due to the multitude of
components and advanced cryptography involved in the process." -

"There’s a Hole in the Boot	
July 29, 2020   /    Eclypsium" -

IIUC the news are from July 29, 2020 and the issue was fixed in July 29,
2020. Is this a "long time"? I'm even uncertain, if the issue wasn't
already fixed, before the "news" was spread by those making a living
from spreading FUD and selling snake oil.
