More Intel CPU Flaws Surface

Thu, Jun 14, 2018

It is also based on speculative execution and apparently allows floating point registers to be leaked from another process. Dubbed Lazy FP state restore this bug of course affects all systems based on Intel processors which are vulnerable. Linux and the latest flavours of BSD are already fixed or immune anyway. Windows Server 2008 however is still vulnerable.
