Recompiling is unlikely to be a catch-all solution for a recently unveiled Intel CPU vulnerability known as TLBleed, the details of which were leaked on Friday, the head of the OpenBSD project Theo de Raadt says.
A security researcher says a fix for a new vulnerability in Intel processors is likely to require changes to the core operating system and would probably need "a ton of work to mitigate (mostly app recompile)".
The OpenBSD project, which produces an UNIX-like operating system of the same name, has decided to disable support for hyperthreading for Intel processors as it could lead to data leaks in a manner similar to that caused by the Spectre flaws in Intel processors announced earlier this year.
Yes indeed, but that pre-supposes the existence of executives who a) actually understand a business model of revenue & profit[…]
I'm sure NBN will blame the customer's wiring,their router,their ISP,the weather,or perhaps cosmic rays because NOTHING IS EVER THEIR FAULT!!It's[…]
Wouldn’t it be better to sack the NBN Co board and senior management and hire people who know what they’re[…]
It was obviously BAI BAI (bye bye) to the old name then...
Sounds like self-serving bullshit to me.
