installation-guide: secure boot vs. boothole

Hi all,

on the german l10n mailinglist a topic came up regarding the 'secure boot'
chapter in the installation-guide:

It was stated, that the manual declares Secure Boot as an unproblematic
function. And this in an unauthorized way, when looking at the BootHole 
security issues.

What do you think?
Should we mention these security issues (or the basic background behind all
this) in the guide? We may add a link to 
as an overview page for this topic.

Or do we ignore this - saying, that all software could have it's hidden
security holes and therefore there is no need to point out this explicitly
for the Secure Boot function?
