Security researchers have discovered a new set of vulnerabilities that affect Intel chips dating back to 2011, including the chips that have been used in Apple devices. Read More »
70 Days Ago Academic researchers today disclosed details of the newest class of speculative execution side-channel vulnerabilities in Intel processors that impacts all modern chips, including the chips used in Apple devices.
70 Days Ago Yet another major flaw has been discovered in practically all of Intel's processors released since 2011, with a new class of discovered vulnerabilities that could allow sensitive information to be stolen from the processor, in an issue likened to the Meltdown and Spectre fiasco.
70 Days Ago There’s a flaw in the vast majority of Intel chips from here back to the year 2011 called ZombieLoad. That’s what security researchers are calling it, anyway.
70 Days Ago Intel yesterday disclosed a new group of Microarchitectural Data Sampling (MDS) hardware vulnerabilities that affect its CPUs. Rogue In-Flight Data Load (RIDL), Fallout, and ZombieLoad speculative execution attacks are related to Spectre and Meltdown which were discovered last year, and allow attackers to leak in-flight data from CPU-internal buffers (Line Fill Buffers, Load Ports, Store Buffers), including data never stored in CPU caches.
70 Days Ago A newly discovered security flaw in Intel processors allows attackers to steal any data that’s been recently accessed by the processor. That even holds true on cloud servers, which could allow an attacker to steal information from other virtual machines running on the same PC.
68 Days Ago Intel has handled the recent discovery of a security vulnerability in its CPUs with confidence, a contrast to its reaction to Spectre and Meltdown. But with ZombieLoad, performance and security seem to be at odds, and you have to choose.
67 Days Ago You’re forgiven if the huge Intel chip vulnerability disclosure from a couple of days ago slipped under your radar. For one thing, the new problems are sort of variants of the much splashier Spectre and Meltdown bugs of early 2018.
