Security Firmware Patch

Captured from settlement data point networks.

High grade firmware for secure hardware interfaces have to use their manufacturer's authorised updates. These can be expensive and sometimes custom built patches are used instead. These provide the components necessary to manipulate the firmware in unauthorised ways.

How to get components

Components may be obtained in locations noted. Higher rarity components can be usually obtained from bigger and/or more dangerous ships and locations (like T9 for transportation ships, Anaconda for combat ships, well defended settlements with Data points and so on).

The data may be incomplete or not entirely accurate. If you find any errors please let me know in the discussion.
