I continue to agree with Triulzi and other security researchers when they say it's perfectly feasible for a determined attacker to develop malware as advanced as badBIOS and unleash it wittingly or otherwise on Ruiu's machines. At the same time, extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If badBIOS is real, there should be no reason researchers can't independently verify its existence, especially if, as Ruiu says, it has infected more than a dozen computers and USB drives over a three-year span.
Meet “badBIOS,” the mysterious Mac and PC malware that jumps airgaps

Maybe they have created a program that can detect changes in voltage,capacidance,resistance of the IC(CMOS) and use that to detect leaked rf from surrounding machines?
Maybe the firmware's (embedded flash rom) magnetic read/writing rate changes depending on the rf signals from surounding computers being induced on it?
That is one masterful hack.
