Intel "Intel is pleased to announce the BIOS Implementation Test Suite, a bootable pre-OS environment for testing BIOSes and in particular their initialization of Intel processors, hardware, and technologies. BITS can verify your BIOS against many Intel recommendations. In addition, BITS includes Intel's official reference code as provided to BIOS, which you can use to override your BIOS's hardware initialization with a known-good configuration, and then boot an OS."

Um... Yes. That's what's happening.
Is it affecting you in any meaningful way? Well, there's no way to tell, as it has full control over what your OS has access to.
You'd have to monitor that machine with another one, monitor the all packets sent in/out...

Seriously, what's with the sarcasm. So you don't care. Why chime in?
