Firefox's latest update reduces the accuracy of time sources in the browser, making it much harder to perform web-based Meltdown and Spectre attacks. Google plans to follow with a patch on January 24.
Despite concerns over performance hits, Microsoft has update supported Windows builds to protect against the Meltdown and Spectre CPU vulnerability that has impacted Intel, AMD, and ARM.
US government-backed cybersecurity team says the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerability can only be fixed by removing the affected CPU. Such an action would take a massive toll on the industry.
Researchers have found vulnerabilities in AMD and Intel chips suggesting new Spectre attacks that bypass existing defenses.
Windows 10 19H1 is shored up against Meltdown and Spectre flaws through two Google-developed processes currently in preview builds.
Windows 10 user's CPU performance will finally be back to normal next year when Microsoft implements Google's Retpoline fix. It will come a year after similar implementations in Red Hat and SUSE.
Intel’s updated microcode to prevent Spectre exploits has been implemented by Microsoft across Windows 10 builds.
Researchers have found a side-channel vulnerability that has been called Foreshadow, a flaw that was discovered the same day Meltdown and Spectre was disclosed.
Two separate research teams have discovered two new Intel CUP flaws. Ret2spec and SpectreRSB both target the Return Stack Buffer to manipulate memory.
Intel is going to adopt an update approach similar to Microsoft’s and release security patches four times each year.
Google's Android Emulator has received a significant upgrade with support for hardware accelerated emulator for AMD processors, as well as Hyper-V support.
A Spectre-like variant known as Speculative Store Bypass is largely mitigated by browser updates, but could still present a risk to users. Consumers can choose to enable a firmware update but will take a performance hit of 2-8%.
The Spectre-like flaws are allegedly considered 'high-severity' and can be exploited more easily than previous variants. Intel issued a vague statement about the threat.
Issued in January, Microsoft’s Meltdown patch has seemingly failed and users are not mitigated. However, the Windows 10 April 2018 Update does come with a fix.
While CPU utilization is a way to measure system performance, Brandon Gregg says it is an incorrect method and cites Meltdown and Spectre patches as proof.
Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 device running wider Intel chip familiar are now protected from Spectre Variant 2.
Google’s new Chrome 64 browser has taken a stand against annoying and malicious content. The new version also introduces support for HDR on Windows 10.
Microsoft is refusing to push security updates to all PCs with anti-virus software until the vendors implement a registry key. The move comes after users experienced blue screens while trying to fix Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities.
Months after first announcing a collaboration, Intel and AMD have debuted new processors with Radeon graphics. The chips produce significantly improved performance and a 50% smaller footprint.
A bug in Intel CSME could let an attacker with local or physical access install an undetectable keylogger on a device or break encryption and DRM.
