The Next Web: Security flaw found in Intel chips may also affect AMD and ARM processors

The Next Web: Security flaw found in Intel chips may also affect AMD and ARM processors. “Originally spotted by The Register, the kernel vulnerability leaves the chips vulnerable to hackers who can exploit security bugs. While there is a fix in the works, The Register reports the patch could slow down computers by up to 30 percent. The flaw could potentially allow malicious programs to read login and password information on secure parts of the computer’s memory. But most unluckily, it might not be limited to the millions of Intel chip-based computers.”
