Intel, AMD and ARM CPUs hit by new Spectre vulnerability | #itsecurity | #infosec


A few days ago, Intel and ARM chips were found to be affected by a new Spectre vulnerability. Dubbed Spectre V2, AMD processors were thought to avoid the issue but new research shows that AMDs mitigation efforts to be inadequate.

The team of researchers from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (via Tom’s Hardware) in the Netherlands demonstrated a new Spectre attack that bypasses hardware mitigations put in place by Intel and ARM over the last few years. AMD was thought to be immune, or at least not significantly impacted but Intel have since revealed that AMD’s chipset can present vulnerabilities. Since then, AMD released a security notice that confirms its vulnerability.
