Intel Monday announced three new measures that will be implemented in a future chip designed to bake security into the hardware following last year's Spectre/Meltdown vulnerability.
AMD releases processor security updates for vulnerabilities concerning the Spectre Variant 2 vulnerability or Microsoft Windows users.
Thieves are intercepting debit cards in the mail, removing their chips and replacing them with older or invalid ones, and then using the stolen chips when their rightful owner activates the sabotaged card.
Intel is instructing users of its remote keyboard to delete the app after a critical flaw was found and also the firm is halting Spectre fixes on older chips.
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) will release firmware patches and a BIOS update to fix the chipset vulnerabilities exposed by researchers earlier this month but the firm says the flaws aren't as severe as they've been portrayed.
Intel is redesigning its chips in order to to combat Spectre and Meltdown attacks, also known as Project Zero Variant 1, 2, and 3.
Researchers at CTS Labs are accusing computer chip manufacturer Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) of disregarding "fundamental security principles" and overlooking "poor security practices and insufficient quality controls."
Exploitation of kernel flaws, more mobile attacks, more rogue nation attacks, and increased use of WiFi 'evil twin' networks predicted for 2018 according to Gary Griffiths.
A Google official on Thursday referred to the Spectre and Meltdown computer chip bugs as "the most challenging and hardest to fix in a decade," requiring unprecedented levels of cooperation.
Intel CEO Brian Krzanich's sale of Intel stock in November before security flaws in the chip became public is raising some eyebrows among regulatory and legal officials.
A reported chip flaw in Intel processors that has existed at least for the last 10 years allows software programs to access content in kernel memory and patching the bug.
