Intel at least was relieved when Spectre emerged quickly to join Meltdown as a dual security threat because now the problem is shared with AMD and makers of ARM processors.

That said, it decided to cover its bases by distributing an update designed to tighten the security of its software drivers, in a bid to mitigate the impact of the CPU-based Spectre bug - doing consumers a favour.

"Security is job number one for Intel and our industry, so the primary focus of our decisions and discussions have been to keep our customer's data safe".

Other news announced during Krzanich's keynote include the launch of Intel Studios for advanced, 3D video productions; support for Intel-powered virtual reality broadcasts during the coming Olympic Winter Games; and autonomous driving technology partnerships with BMW, Nissan, Volkswagen, SAIC Motor, NavInfo, and Ferrari North America.

Microsoft gave a more pessimistic appraisal than Intel's initial assessments, particularly for servers that form the backbone of corporate networks.

Whether Intel sees a slew of defectors or is forced to offer discounts, the company could take a hit to one of its fastest growing business units.

Intel shares were down about half a percent to $43.20 in after-hours trading after the announcement.

Intel CPUs can be exploited by hackers. What was originally reported as a vulnerability specific to processors made by Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) turned out to have much broader implications.

A Google spokesman said the company is set to announce its performance expectations for Android's chip flaw remedy as soon as Wednesday.

Microsoft took the rare step Tuesday of detailing exactly how its latest security fix would impact your computer's performance - down to the millisecond.

The program requires no registration or installation to work and is free.

The discovery of the Meltdown and Spectre flaws is a concern in itself. Finally, as a surprise to everyone present at the keynote, Krzanich gave a live demo of the Volvocopter - an autonomous copter designed to ferry passengers around a city.

Three firmware issues have been flagged by the company in updates released over the past week, according to a confidential document reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

If you receive an error that Powershell is missing, you'll have to do things the hard way and enter everything manually.

"Specifically, these systems are running Intel Broadwell and Haswell CPUs for both client and data centre", he says.

However, the suspension of the security patch rollout does not affect all Windows users.

GPZ Variant 2 (Branch Target Injection or Spectre) is applicable to AMD processors. However, the emergency updates apparently caused overworking most Intel processors. The Motley Fool has the following options: long January 2020 $150 calls on Apple and short January 2020 $155 calls on Apple.

They discovered the vulnerabilities at the same time as the disclosure on January 3.
