Intel CEO: Massive Stock Dump Before Security Flaw Disclosed

Intel processor Intel says rapidly issuing updates to all processors impacted by Meltdown
Kayla Schwartz | 13 January, 2018, 01:52

Meltdown is a particular problem for the cloud computing services run by the likes of Amazon, Google, and Microsoft. If the processor can't enforce the privileges, this flaw will let other standard programs access the restricted locations such as natively coded programs and content on the web using JavaScript. The flaw affects only computers with Intel processors and the ones with AMD CPUs are not affected.

The Register reports that "Programmers are scrambling to overhaul the open-source Linux kernel's virtual memory system".

Two of Google's fixes, called Retpoline and Kernel Page Table Isolation (KPTI), both have meant "negligible impact on performance" for Google's services, according to a Thursday blog post by security engineer Matt Linton and program manager Pat Parseghian.

The release goes on to tout the "great progress" Intel has made in just days since news of these security flaws was broken by Google Project Zero, a team of security analysts employed by Google tasked with finding zero-day vulnerabilities. When exploited, the bug can permit hackers with access to users' sensitive information.

Researchers say an update is in the work for Apple laptops and desktops, but it is not yet clear whether the company's iPhones and iPads are at risk. "More technically, every Intel processor which implements out-of-order execution is potentially affected, which is effectively every processor since 1995 (except Intel Itanium and Intel Atom before 2013)".

Bruno Mars, Cardi B, SZA, & Logic to Perform at Grammys
Bruno Mars and Cardi B will be bringing their " Finesse " to the ceremony, with the latter making her GRAMMY performance debut. Alessia Cara , Khalid and Logic released their moving song 1-800-273-8255 in April 2017, to critical acclaim.

Furthermore, Intel said that the security issues are not from the processor designs themselves, but in the approach that researchers used to compromise a system.

Indeed, as Microsoft and Google have already released fixes for preventing hackers from exploiting these flaws on devices running their software. By the end of next week, Intel expects to have issued updates for more than 90 percent of processor products introduced within the past five years.

"Intel continues to believe that the performance impact of these updates is highly workload-dependent and, for the average computer user, should not be significant and will be mitigated over time", the release added.

"Because chip replacements are not going to happen tomorrow, realistically, software is being updated", Sitaram Chamarty, a security researcher at Tata Consultancy Services, told CNNMoney. As of now users can�??t do much but update their devices to the latest security patches to mitigate the vulnerabilities.

Intel, Santa Clara, Calif., declined to comment on the lawsuits. "Without great IoT device management, this is going to be extremely hard to accomplish". Some, however, have chose to take matters into their own hands.
