Intel warns for Lazy FP vulnerability in Core and Xeon processors


Originally published at:

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.


If only, if only…
