Thread-topic: [CRTech] AMD and ARM CPU chips security vulnerability

Thank you Fred.

 

I also need to correct that ARM is not a part of the Intel family as I stated earlier.  My apologies

 

Below is Linus Torvalds take on the whole Intel thing.  He doesn’t mince words.

From what I’ve read, AMD is not affected.  Just Intel processors which includes ARM.

 

Only partially true. There are actually two classes of vulnerability that have been identified, code-named ‘Spectre’ and ‘Meltdown’ (I know, it sounds like a James Bond novel!). It appears that only Intel is vulnerable to Meltdown, but processors from a wide range of manufacturers (including AMD) have been demonstrated to be vulnerable to Spectre.

 

Some good information is available at:

 

 

Cheers!
