Intel and other technology companies have been informed of new security research that describes methods of software analysis, which, when used for malicious purposes, have the potential to collect sensitive data from computing devices that function as designed. . Intel is confident that these do not have the potential to corrupt, modify or delete data.
Recent reports that this has been caused by a "bug" or "failure" and that are unique to Intel products, are wrong. Based on today's analysis, many types of computing devices, whose processors and operating systems come from different vendors, are susceptible to this problem.
Intel is committed to the security of products and customers and is working very hard to close with other technology companies such as AMD, ARM Holdings and various operating system providers, to develop a proposal from the entire industry, which can resolve this issue quickly and constructively. Intel has begun to provide software and firmware updates to mitigate this situation. Unlike some reports, any impact on performance depends on the workload and, for the average user, should not be significant and will be mitigated over time. on security security safety
Intel is committed to the industry's best practices in the responsible disclosure of any possible security issue, which is why Intel and other vendors would disclose the information. next week when there were more software and firmware updates available. However, Intel makes this statement today due to inaccurate reports from the media.
Check with your operating system provider or system manufacturer, and apply any updates, as soon as it becomes available. Following good security practices that protect against malware in general will also help protect against potential exploitation until updates can be applied.
Intel is confident that its products are the safest in the world and that with the support of its partners, the current solutions to this problem provide the best possible security for their clients.
