Security threats regarding the bootup of a computer

Posted 23 May 2014 - 04:44 AM

What security threats is associated with the bootup of a computer?
At what stages could Eve gain control?

All i could think of is that Eve could boot up from a linux live cd or such to gain full access to an unencrypted filesystem. If the computer is hibernation state, she could also copy the hibernatefile.sys and gain access to everything which was in RAM at the time the computer entered that state.

Are the more threats?
Thanks

I have tried to search the web for some time without finding any more information on the subject :/
The class is about computer security in general.
