    In a new research paper published on the last day of 2019, a team of American and German academics has shown that field-programmable gate array (FPGA) cards can be abused to launch better and faster Rowhammer attacks. Learn more about how FPGA cards can be abused for faster and more reliable Rowhammer attacks:

    The new research expands on previous work into an attack vector known as Rowhammer.

    Rowhammer attacks were first detailed in 2014. The attack exploits a design flaw in the hardware modern memory cards -- most commonly known as RAM.
