Intel's fix for Meltdown and Spectre had a bug of its own

Intel's fix for Meltdown and Spectre had a bug of its own

Since the major bugs of 2014, nothing has shaken hardware security so hard until the revelations around processors that hit at the start of 2018, dubbed "Meltdown" and "Spectre". Despite the company's promise of greater transparency going forward, the executive vice president and general manager of Intel's Data Center Group, Navin Shenoy, only confirmed these issues after an article by the Wall Street Journal had elucidated the problems.

After Spectre and Meltdown were reported earlier this month, Intel officially accepted the existence of the flaws and since then many tech companies have tried their hand at issuing an effective meltdown and spectre patch.

In the meantime, Microsoft this week said it has "temporarily paused" patches for Windows customers running AMD processors after some users reported seeing the "blue screen of death" after the update was applied.

"These systems are running Intel Broadwell and Haswell CPUs for both client and data center", it added.

Intel rolled out some patches to fix the dreaded Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, but it is now advising customers not to install these security updates.
