Intel chief executive Brian Krzanich has avoided making any mention of his controversial sale of stock and options in a keynote at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, though he did touch on the two vulnerabilities found in most processors produced by the company he heads.

The Raspberry Pi, the little single-board computer that is used by enthusiasts, is not vulnerable to the Meltdown bug that was revealed this week to be affecting most Intel processors made since 1995, the founder of the Raspberry Pi project says.
Linux creator Linus Torvalds has had some harsh words for Intel in the course of a discussion about patches for two bugs that were found to affect most of the company's processors.
