    Exclamation The Ryzen/TR have MAJOR flaws.

    If you thought SPECTRE/Meltdown was bad... then take a look at what was released today: https://amdflaws.com/

    I am pretty sad actually...

    I've been following this and it seems like its....

    1) fake news

    2) not as serious as how CTS describes it.

    3) It is not factual and only CTS 's 'opinions'

    4) Seems like they (CTS) was paid to do this stunt. ???

    The big thing to note is that malware would need admin rights to exploit these vulnerabilities. So they only work if the machine is already pwned. Don't panic just yet.

    well intel has nice big branch in Israel

    CTS Labs, a Tel Aviv-based cybersecurity startup so also in Israel. .



    hmmm...

    http://www.zdnet.com/article/linus-t...bility-report/
    Linux's creator said he thinks CTS Labs' AMD chip security report "looks more like stock manipulation than a security advisory" and questions an industry.

    https://www.securityweek.com/cts-lab...amd-chip-flaws
    CTS Labs was only launched recently and its founders’ work experience has raised some questions. This, combined with the lack of technical details in the report has made many people doubt that the vulnerabilities exist or that they are as critical as the company claims.

    hmmmm

    Someone came into my house today and asked for my bank details and passwords...I gave it to them 'cos they said they liked puppies and small children...they then used my AMD computer to steal money from my account!

    Why AMD? just why are you selling these horribly compromised items?!

    I have called this AMD exploit DeathDoomEndTimesDoom and written a white paper...

    I may benefit substantially by publishing this paper

    Shalom

    Initial reports have indicated that the vulnerabilities were verified by a 3rd party researcher as real, but the way this was all dumped on the public was likely theater designed to embarrass AMD and/or manipulate stock prices. The risk is definitely being exaggerated.
