I've been reading something about a GPU malware that hides in the GPU's Vram, and the UEFI malware called ESPecter. So this is just a question if Kaspersky can detect those kinda malwares?

Hi @TheQuestioningLad , 

Yes, Kaspersky can detect these malwares. 

GPU malware is not stored in GPU, it is executed as a normal application, and it is detected at the moment of execution. 

UEFI malware will be detected both in hidden EFI section or in BIOS ROM. 

Hope it helps. 

hello, i wonder if there’s a way we could scan UEFI as personal user
Eset app have a custom scan for it.

and finally if there’s a virus in the UEFI Kaspersky internet security would be able to detected and remove it ?
