Say Hello to Downfall, Another Data-Leaking Security Hole in Several Years of Intel Chips
[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.
