DARPA invites hackers to break hardware to make it more secure
Software bug bounties are ubiquitous in the cybersecurity industry, but those focused on hardware are rarer.
Intel pushes for hardware-specific additions to vulnerability taxonomy
A new proposal is an outgrowth of the Spectre and Meltdown revelations from January 2018.
After Meltdown and Spectre, meet a new set of Intel chip flaws
Intel and a group of cybersecurity researchers published details on four new potential chip attacks that exploit the speculative execution process.
Jolted by Meltdown and Spectre, Intel aims to accelerate patching process
For Intel, the Spectre and Meltdown saga drove home the fact that “we weren’t making it easy on our customers to take what we were giving them and actually get it out to people,” Intel's Audrey Plonk told CyberScoop.
Foreshadow, the new data-stealing vulnerabilities impacting Intel chips
Also known as the L1 Terminal Fault, this flaw is the latest round of attacks stemming from exploitation of speculative execution.
NetSpectre attack can exploit CPUs to leak information remotely, researchers say
NetSpectre is an attack that can exploit CPUs to leak information remotely, unlike the original Spectre attack (but it's super slow).
