Intel's processors are also starting to be patched regularly?


Intel released a total of 13 mitigation measures to address potential security risks on Tuesday.

Includes targeting Spectre v1 (ghost vulnerability, bypassing boundary storage)VariantsPatches and local users can read the BIOS and administrator passwords from memory leaks (CVE-2017-5704, affecting 4~7 generation Core platform) and so on.

The variant of Phantom v1 is the first to expose, allowing malicious code to exploit speculative execution on Intel computers to potentially change functions and notify the hijacked application of the addresses returned by other threads.

TheReg confirmed that this is the first centralized release of Intel's quarterly security patch, which means that Intel will focus on the release of security patches on a quarterly basis, which looks very much like “good teammates”. Microsoft's Patch Tuesday (Tuesday Patch Day, the second Tuesday of each month for system patch updates).

Of course, considering that consumers rarely have the habit of downloading “Patch” directly from Intel's official website, Intel's security updates are more likely to be released by joint partners. According to the report, motherboards and OEMs got this wave of Intel patches in March, and they have been deploying tests.

At the beginning of the year, Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities caused an uproar in the industry, including Intel products “the deepest injury”.

Intel's quarterly security update program is designed to address variant attacks of underlying vulnerabilities like ghosts, as well as their new emphasis on security issues.
