Wow, the AMD processors Have Two security holes is Dangerous

173 – Behind the performance of the AMD processor manufactured in the period 2011-2019, it turns out, two security vulnerabilities is dangerous, because it is a gateway for malware.

The page reported ZdnetOn Tuesday (10/3/2020), these gaps have an impact on the security of the data processed in the CPU, whereby the data stolen could be or it could be manipulated to lose the protection of the security.

First of all, this vulnerability has been published by researchers from the University of Graz, claimed already this gap to AMD in August 2019.

The researchers mention that the two slots will be called by the name of ‘Collide+probe’ and ‘Load+Reload”, which is a derivative of the slots ‘Take A Way’, the gap Ghost, the on the Intel processor.

Worse still, the second gap is found in all AMD processors for the period 2011 to 2019, including the use of the micro-architecture of Zen.

“We do reverse engineering of cache L1D AMD predictors in a microarchitecture from 2011 to 2019, this makes the discovery of the two techniques new attacks,” the researchers wrote in the report, the results of the research.

In the world of cyber security, the gap of this kind are often referred to as attacks, side-channel, which can be done by exploiting the loopholes in JavaScript, through the intermediary of the browser, such as Chrome and Firefox.

Not just reported, have the researchers also solutions on AMD, so you can patch up this gap, the repairs on the side of the Hard-and software.

It is easy, in this way, any side effects that could have to a decrease in the performance of the CPU.
