There’s Another Hardware Flaw In Intel Chipsets

Most of us remember back in 2017 when Spectre and Meltdown wreaked havoc on the computer hardware industry. After we put that behind us, a similar flaw surfaced in 2018 and manufactures scrambled to patch that one. Intel eventually released chips that thwarted this kind of attack. Now, researchers have discovered a new flaw in Intel chipsets that may be un-patchable. Reportedly, this exploit is present on every Intel chipset manufactured in the last 5 years. Yikes!
