Intel Continues To Struggle Delivering Stable Spectre And Meltdown Fixes

Meltdown and Spectre fallout leads to first RC9 of a Linux Kernel since 2011 Erm... a little help

It also advised customers of certain systems (a full list is here) to stop deploying the patches until the updated patches are released. Assuming testing goes well, we can likely expect Intel to release the fix more broadly.

In short, while computing device vendors and other Intel partners work with Intel to fix these issues at the top level and hopefully avoid these faulty patches, the firm also asking end users to stay away from the latest processor updates.

Those patches, however, have only dug Intel into a deeper hole.

The guidance applies to at least some of the processors from Intel's last several generations of chips, with affected models in the Broadwell, Haswell, Coffee Lake, Kaby Lake, Skylake, and Ivy Bridge families.

The 86-year-old Moreno said, "Morgan is more than just an actor , producer humanitarian - this man is a national treasure". The actresses she gave a shout-out to are proof that "we're potent, powerful and viable".

Each time news trickles out about just how insane this unprecedented industry event really is, cloud vendors and data center managers consider buying servers from AMD or ARM vendors the next time their systems need to be replaced.

Shanoy said Monday it has figured out why the patch is causing unexpected reboots for some of the affected chips, and it will use that information to release an updated patch in the future.

Intel Corp. reported on Monday that it has discovered the cause of reboot issues that affected its Broadwell and Haswell processors after patches were applied created to fix potential side-channel "speculative execution" exploits. Lawsuits predicably followed as the chipmaker, along with almost every other major tech company, frantically pushed out updates to patch the vulnerability. In addition, Intel says that it has identified the root cause for the reboots. "The security of our products is critical for Intel, our customers and partners, and for me, personally".

In addition to the firmware update releases by chip vendors, operating system vendors have released updates for the Meltdown and Spectre attack methods. "I assure you we are working around the clock to ensure we are addressing these issues". "This would be delivered via a BIOS update, and would not impact mitigations for Variant 1 (Spectre) and Variant 3 (Meltdown)".
