[BLACK HAT] Googlers have lately found not one but two more security vulnerabilities in Intel and AMD processors that can be exploited to steal sensitive data from a vulnerable computer's memory.

Specifically, there's one flaw in Intel components, and one in AMD. Both can be abused by malware running on a system, or a rogue logged-in user, to lift passwords, secrets, and other data out of memory that should be off limits. This should be concerning for those who use shared servers in the cloud. 

The Intel vulnerability, found by Daniel Moghimi and dubbed Downfall, was addressed on Tuesday, nearly a year after its private disclosure.

The AMD vulnerability, found by Tavis Ormandy and named Zenbleed, was patched, to a degree, in July after being reported privately in mid-May, as we previously covered.
