7 New Meltdown and Spectre-type CPU Flaws Affect Intel, AMD, ARM CPUs

Disclosed earlier this year, potentially dangerous Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities that affected a large family of modern processors proven that speculative execution attacks can be exploited in a trivial way to access highly sensitive information. Since then, several more variants of speculative Read More …

Flaws in Popular Self-Encrypting SSDs Let Attackers Decrypt Data

We all have something to hide, something to protect. But if you are also relying on self-encrypting drives for that, then you should read this news carefully. Security researchers have discovered multiple critical vulnerabilities in some of the popular self-encrypting Read More …

New Intel CPU Flaw Exploits Hyper-Threading to Steal Encrypted Data

A team of security researchers has discovered another serious side-channel vulnerability in Intel CPUs that could allow an attacker to sniff out sensitive protected data, like passwords and cryptographic keys, from other processes running in the same CPU core with Read More …

Two Zero-Day Bugs Open Millions of Wireless Access Points to Attack

Two zero-day vulnerabilities in Bluetooth Low-Energy chips made by Texas Instruments (and used in millions of wireless access points) open corporate networks to crippling stealth attacks. Adversaries can exploit the bugs by simply being approximately 100 to 300 feet from Read More …

New Cold Boot Attack Unlocks Disk Encryption On Nearly All Modern PCs

Security researchers have revealed a new attack to steal passwords, encryption keys and other sensitive information stored on most modern computers, even those with full disk encryption. The attack is a new variation of a traditional Cold Boot Attack, which is Read More …
