Does AMD have Spectre and Meltdown-like security flaws?
Researchers have discovered critical security flaws with AMD's chips, allowing attackers to access sensitive data from highly guarded processors across millions of devices.
Particularly worrisome is the fact that the vulnerabilities lie in the so-called secure part of the processors -- typically where your device stores sensitive data like passwords and encryption keys. It's also where your processor makes sure nothing malicious is running when you start your computer.
Researchers from CTS-Labs, a security company based in Israel, announced on Tuesday that they found 13 critical security vulnerabilities that would let attackers access data stored on AMD's Ryzen and EPYC processors, as well as install malware on it. AMD's Ryzen chips power desktop and laptop computers, while EPYC processors are found in servers.
