Security flaw in Intel chips could affect millions
Intel has revealed another hardware security flaw that could affect millions of machines.
The chipmaker said Tuesday there’s no evidence of anyone exploiting the bug outside of a research laboratory. “Doing so successfully in the real world is a complex undertaking,” Bryan Jorgensen, Intel’s senior director of product assurance and security, said in a video statement.
The bug is embedded in the architecture of computer hardware. But “with a large enough data sample, time or control of the target system’s behavior,” Jorgensen said, the flaw could enable attackers to see leaked data.
