Next Batch Of Intel CPUs Will Have Redesigned Architecture; Protection Against Spectre

Next Batch Of Intel CPUs Will Have Redesigned Architecture; Protection Against Spectre

Microsoft wants security researchers to search for and report speculative execution side channel vulnerabilities (a hardware vulnerability class that affects CPUs from multiple manufacturers), as well as bugs that can be misused to bypass Windows and Azure Spectre and Meltdown mitigations.

Krzanich clarified that the new integrated defenses would combat Meltdown and Spectre Variant 2, although as expected, software patches will still be needed for these new chips to combat Spectre Variant 1. For example, this could include a technique that can read sensitive memory from the Microsoft Edge content. Variant 1 can be fixed by patching programs to thwart Spectre-based attacks. However, they have now redesigned their processors to fix "Variants 2 and 3" of the Spectre vulnerabilities revealed a year ago.

The company said that these protections are now being added to 8th Generation Intel Core processors and Intel Xeon Scalable processors (codenamed Cascade Lake).

In other words: patch your systems, or buy new chips to avoid that faff.

Gallup: Americans' Support for Israel Strong as Ever
A Gallup poll released on Tuesday found a surge in American support for Israel that hasn't been seen since the early 1990s. However, she added, "given Trump's past efforts at diplomacy, anything is possible".

The exact technical details are still under wraps. Each chip generation introduces a modest speed-up over the previous generation: the upcoming chips may not offer much of a performance increase this time around due to these necessary redesigns.

The company has since released microcode updates for "100 percent" of its products launched in the past five years that require protection against this vulnerability and it wil continue to address the Meltdown vulnerability through future software updates. These should be available from operating system and motherboard makers. One possibility is merely that the same software fixes the company has developed could be integrated at a chip-level.

The exact details behind those "protective walls", as Krzanich describes them, is unclear at this stage. With that knowledge, hackers could potentially access what's meant to be protected kernel space memory and inject malicious code for the chip to unwittingly run.

Naturally, the final amount awarded will depend on how applicable the side channel attack is, how hard it is to execute, how reliable the exploit is, and how impactful the attack is.
