Have You Patched Flaws in Your Microprocessor Chips — New Business Risk

Raspberry Pi not vulnerable to Meltdown or Spectre bugs
In light of this, Apple advised users not to download apps from sources they cannot trust.
Also, Google has released a new stable build for Chrome OS, the operating system carried by a number of laptops and other computing devices in the market that opted not to go with the more standard Windows software.
True, vulnerabilities in chip design are rare.
HPE doesn't say much.
There's been some speculation regarding the updates that will protect PC users against these bugs and a potential impact on performance of their PCs. Data is supposed to be protected and isolated, but researchers discovered that in some cases, the information can be exposed while the processor queues it up. Almost everyone will be affected in one way or another.
Fears that the fixes would limit the performance of processors have largely been resolves. Malicious apps can exploit these methods to grant other parties unrestricted access to a system.
It's an industry technique used to optimize the processor's performance.
El Reg: "Can you explain why?"
El Reg: "Why would your software be less affected?" And this is independent of whether or not the device has been manufactured by Apple, Samsung, Lenovo, Dell, or you have built up your device yourself. "However, detection would have an extremely negative impact on the device's performance and significantly influence user experience; it would be a less effective approach than prevention".
El Reg: "So syscall-heavy offerings will suffer more?" Second, the patches being circulated reportedly slow down a machine by as much as 30%.
El Reg: "What will be the effect of implementing the fixes?" These are processors made my Intel, AMD, and ARM. Analogous to the idea behind KPTI, Microsoft is separating NT kernel memory, to address the problems. The vast majority should fall into this category.
"Therefore, we recommend that ESET users keep track of any related patches for their systems and apply them as soon as possible".

The company hasn't released an official statement yet but a spokesman said that the company is working hard to solve the issue. But the whole episode still sucks for admins, who now need to look at their environments from top to bottom for security issues.
The 31-year-old information security researcher and post-doctoral fellow at Austria's Graz Technical University had just breached the inner sanctum of his computer's central processing unit (CPU) and stolen secrets from it.
Scale helps justify the massive investment needed to develop improved semiconductor technology and produce chips. This led to the soaring of AMD's stock sometimes last week.
AAA projects busiest holiday travel season on record
The London-based business information provider teamed with AAA in 2009 to jointly analyze travel trends during major holidays. Do Not Respond! Avoid eye contact, don't make gestures, maintain space around your vehicle and contact 9-1-1 if needed.
Google discovers 'serious' flaws in Intel and other chips
The other, Spectre , is harder to fix, but also harder to exploit, making it less of an immediate threat to consumer devices. The company in its presentation also says the exploits do not impact just "one architecture or processor implementation".
Chelsea vs Bournemouth — Prediction
The 30-year-old former Chelsea midfielder says he is happy playing in the Chinese Super League for Tianjin Teda. By contrast, Michy Batshuayi's future at the club is in doubt. "Coming up against Arsenal, he was so quick".
US stocks end mixed after Fed rate hike decision
A Senate committee approved Powell's nomination and sent it to the full Senate, where his confirmation is considered certain. BETTING ON FINANCIALS: Banks and other financial stocks accounted for many of the market's gains.
Saudi king orders $19bn stimulus for private sector
Turkey has hosted Hamas and supported Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Morsi in Egypt, even after he was deposed in 2013. Ostensibly Saudi Arabia is also on their side in Syria, which adds a layer of complexity to a complex region.
Intel Facing Multiple Lawsuits Over Chip Security Flaw
The good news, he said, is that major cloud providers have known about this for months and have had time to tackle the problem. Meltdown has been addressed with software patches issued by Microsoft and Apple, as well as several browser manufacturers.
