Not that they can do much about it

So there's some novel malware afoot that can embed itself into UEFI. What exactly are we expecting ordinary Windows users to do about it? What can they do about it? Not much, honestly. Their best bet is to not run the installer, but the tools at their disposal to help them avoid that are the same tools they use to avoid launching other malware, so they're probably already doing everything they can, short of deploying an application allow-list (and hoping they don't add the malware to the allowed list).
