    Does the Intel Core i9-7980XE Processor have the intel bug?

    Intel Core i9-7980XE Processors - DO they have that bug or whatever spyware spectre or something? IS that something that should be worried about when purchasing?

    Yes it vulernable.
    You should only worry if you leave your zipper open and things haanging out flying in the breeze. The exploit cannot be used if your network is secure. Cant get to the machine if they cant get to your network.
