    Intel last week released six advisories covering a range of products, the most interesting of which is a flaw discovered in the company’s Software Guard Extensions (SGX) built into all Intel processors since the company’s sixth-generation Skylake processors in 2015. Discovered by independent researcher SaifAllah benMassaoud, the latest SGX vulnerability (CVE-2018-18098) is a weakness in the software layer that enables SGX hardware that could allow what Intel euphemistically describes as “escalation of privilege or information disclosure.”
