Every Computer Made In The Last 20 Years Could Contain A Major Flaw

Now Intel has responded.

The last few days rumours have circulated that two potentially catastrophic chip flaws, which allow hackers to steal private and sensitive data, may be present in more than 90% of the world’s computers.

The security experts who discovered the issue, which they say affects an entire generation of computers, mobile devices and cloud networks, released a proof of concept code to confirm their reported findings.

Developers signing non-disclosure agreements meant there had been no word on the validity of these claims from insiders who built the faulty systems. Until now.
