ent of OS, virtual machine, or sandboxed environments. As the researchers explain, Intel's speculative execution of certain memory workloads requires the full physical address bits for the information in memory to be known, which could allow for the full address to be available in user space - allowing for privilege es

this didnt work before, why would it work now? are average porn hub users affected? No? Oh. Companies that have firewalls and other custom security stuff? No? Oh....

I would sue these people for hacking or w/e. They are just looking for a payout.
edit: they are looking for a job at intel most likely.

edit1: come to think of it, AMD users are not affected because their CPUs dont support the said feature. The less you have, the less vulnerable you are.. AMD beggars...buy cheap cpu just to overpay the mobo and ram.

Give it some time and a few ransomware apps should pop up.
You visit a web site that run some Java crap you don't even know about, which in turns downloads the code that installs the malware and bang.
You're fucked.
Use NoScript and be done with it Wink
JavaScript, Webworks, all that nonsense that can tap into your system should be banned.

That leaves only an attack surface for the warez you download - legal or illegal, it don't matter.
They were always full of malware anyway, so what's one more? Wink

BTW,
Apple is no better.
They don't fix known problems either:

There is nothing to fix. Most of the exploits were useless in the first place, and the useful ones required physical presence and inserting the malware via USB or such.

Fixes for these useless exploits just degraded performance. I opted to use the tool that can enable/disable them, and I disabled them all (fixes).

These (almost all of them) have existed for over 15 years prior to their discovery and no one was affected.

Exactly why I don't even waste my breath responding.
