Intel Processor Security Vulnerability
 
If you've followed the AMD thread you know I've said that Intel sold out to the US government. Well those security breaches have now been discovered by the community. Apple users should check with apple how to turn off SMT on you apples to make them secure. Anyone with an Intel laptop or PC should turn of multi-threading on the processor. ALL OF YOU DATA IS ACCESSIBLE THROUGH THIS BREACH. Just FYI. You can watch the video and it will give you enough info to do the just research to secure your INTEL processor. If you are running AMD, well, you're good.

So...let's elaborate here a bit. So what your saying is that Intel is the devil and AMD is Moses!!!!

Great news for AMD shareholders I would guess!!:rofl:

LONG AMD.....:thumbsup:

No, just a PSA to people using Intel, it's a very real threat, especially if they use their computer to pay bills etc, etc. Here's what you AMD investors have to look forward to this year............. it's called a MONOPOLY!!!!

While the exploit is real, there are much easier ways to steal your data from your average PC or Laptop. This vulnerability is much more significant in shared datacenters (Ie "the cloud") where it would be possible for one customer who is using a server to exploit the vulnerability and in theory see data from another customer on the same server...

From Intel " This vulnerability does not exist on Intel-based consumer PCs with consumer firmware "

I donít know why I canít post a link or copy n paste it either. Anyway, my point was intel promised 10nm in 2015 and then every year after.

No Sir, the "Cloud" is all AMD. If you have a core I7 or core I5 pc look and see if the latest OS update turned off hyperthreading, bet you're has been turned off, this laptop's hyperthreading has been turned off by MS w10 update.

More and more,this backdoor has been built into intel cpus since 2011 or the 3rd gen.


YeOldeStonecat 05-20-2019 11:25 AM

Apple, Microsoft, Google..they've all patched this already. You don't have to go "turn off" various services like hyperthreading.
