Chipmageddon: New security vulnerability in modern CPUs could enable the mother of all data breaches

Chipmageddon: New security vulnerability in modern CPUs could enable the mother of all data breaches

As users continue to demand faster performance from computers, chip designers have baked in a serious design flaw that exposes a computer’s internal memory to hackers via two major security exploits, code named Meltdown and Spectre. These exploits allow an adversary to access kernel-level memory without proper security checks, potentially gaining access to passwords and… Read more
