Intel warns for a new vulnerability in Intel Core processors that can provide attackers access to sensitive data like cryptographic keys. Just like with the Spectre and Meltdown attacks, the new attack is a so-called ‘speculative execution side channel attack’. Unlike the other two attacks, this attack has a less catch name, “Lazy FP”.

Why don’t they just fix and release a replacement CPU to fix the problem once and for all? This was iNtel caused problem so they should lose money fixing it.
