Intel claims it may finally have fixed Spectre flaw
23 February, 2018, 05:06 | Author: Shannon Newton
Intel's newest patch comes two months after the defects were first revealed to the public, but nine months after the flaws were first reported to the company.
Intel is facing lawsuits due to their alleged actions and inactions over the recently publicized Spectre and Meltdown exploits.
Intel has updated its buggy Spectre microcode patches with all-new patches for 6th-gen (Skylake, 100 series chipsets), 7th-gen (Kaby Lake, 200 series chipsets), and 8th-gen (Coffee Lake, 300 series chipsets) motherboards / CPUs.
Patching all of its processors to protect them from Spectre based attacks has already taken Intel quite some time and those running older chips will have to wait longer before their systems are fully patched.
The company has affirmed that the updates will be issued through OEM firmware pushes.
"I continue to encourage people to always keep their systems up-to-date".
He said that the updates should also provide protection against the Google-developed binary modification technique Retpoline.
Major tech companies such as Google, Apple, Amazon, and Mozilla each scrambled in issuing their own mitigations against Spectre and Meltdown, which were, in essence, hacking techniques.
