But the recent media reports have forced at least two of the affected vendors to issue public statements on the matter.

It remains unknown whether and how many hackers have taken advantage of these gaps, although the BBC's National Center for Cyber-Security, according to BBC, believes that this has not happened yet. He has been Working last 6 years on online platforms, medias and online publishing.

After chip-maker Intel confirmed a potential security flaw in its chips, Microsoft on Thursday issued emergency updates to supported versions of Windows.

On Friday, the company said the Apple Watch is not affected by either of the vulnerabilities.

A program using the CPU in user mode is supposed to only have access to the hardware that the CPU has allotted.

Earlier this week a security flaw with x86 CPUs went public, which reportedly impacted Intel CPUs the most.

These supposedly inaccessible tables contained references to physical memory.

The patch "will be effective" but it will be critical to get all networks and cloud services upgraded, Ylonen said. For instance, a more shallow out-of-order execution pipeline could tip the race condition towards against the data leakage. These papers will supply you with great detail.

ARM spokesman Phil Hughes said that patches had already been shared with the companies' partners, which include many smartphone manufacturers. Researchers say one of the bugs, called Meltdown, affects nearly every processor Intel has made since the mid-1990s.

The safety of this fix will almost certainly result in a performance hit to all Intel computers.

There is no way around this if your system uses an Intel chip.

However for some variants of Spectre, Dr Yarom suggested changes would need to be made to processor chips themselves. To truly stop Spectre, all computers need to be replaced - think about that for a moment.

Intel labeled as "incorrect" the reports describing a "bug" or "flaw" unique to its products. Spooky! The official (simplified) explanation of each bug is listed below.

Intel, AMD, ARM, and Google have released statements on this situation.

"These vulnerabilities can have big implications".

But the timeline raises questions: Krzanich's plan was created on October 30 and by Intel's own admission, the company learned of the chip vulnerability in June. In just a few days, weeks, or months, hackers can render any computer device vulnerable to attack.

"In edge computing, they are not going to be in purpose built buildings". It's now delivering the software and firmware fixes to its partners.

Amid a frantic rush to patch a computer security flaw, experts struggled Thursday to determine the impact of a newly discovered vulnerability which could affect billions of devices worldwide.

"You can never reduce risk down to zero, you can only mitigate it and there are trade-offs", he added. That's why operating system vendors are currently redesigning some of the core functionalities of your computer as a workaround.

"The current Intel problem, if true, would likely not require CPU replacement in our opinion". But the second flaw (Spectre) has a much wider reach, as it also affects chips in smartphones, tablets and computers powered by Intel, ARM and AMD.
