Intel Says Patches For Chip Issue Could Have Flaws

Spectre & Meltdown threaten the universe

The Redmond giant notes that Intel Haswell processors and older see the most impact following firmware updates to protect against Spectre and Meltdown.

"We are also working directly with data centre customers to discuss the issue".

Windows 10 downloads the update automatically and will prompt you to install it. To install the update manually, open Settings Update and Security and select "Check for updates" option.

Meltdown and Spectre have been discovered in computer chips in billions of computers, smartphone and tablets across the world.

Microsoft has rolled out a series of patches for the flaws since January 3rd, but last week said these patches would not be pushed to computers running incompatible third-party AV.

While we believe that AMD's processor architectures make it difficult to exploit Variant 2, we continue to work closely with the industry on this threat.

Microsoft began offering updates to its Windows operating system to address the flaw last week, but is withholding the repair from some AMD-powered machines that have been rendered inoperable by its fix. In the document, Intel urges customers to delay additional deployment of these microcode updates and the company will provide frequent updates. (NASDAQ: AMD), and privately held ARM Holdings. Brian Krzanich expects other industry players to follow similar practices: share security-related hardware innovations and help researchers of security vulnerabilities. "It also required broad industry collaboration since the scope of the vulnerabilities was so widespread", wrote Sloss.

He concluded: "To be clear, we do not want to see the performance of our products impacted in any way, and we know our customers feel the same way". For the latest details, please see Microsoft's website.

Whether Intel sees a slew of defectors or is forced to offer discounts, the company could take a hit to one of its fastest growing business units. However, the emergency updates apparently caused overworking most Intel processors.

How have chipmakers and technology companies responded? I must hasten to add that Meltdown which is mostly an Intel problem will be an easy one to fix but Spectre could be tricky. That's right - they think these 10 stocks are even better buys. LinkedIn is owned by Microsoft. Because we are talking about kernel memory, the likelihood of impacting applications is very small other than performance on application processor intensive tasks.
