CTS who? AMD brushes off chipset security bugs with firmware patches

The ruse has been exposed

AMD CPUs do NOT have defects per se. The only means to implement any alterations to the secure area of the CPUs is with full administrative permissions so the CTS claims are meritless. What has been disclosed is that there was a 15 million share short sell of AMD stock at the time of the CTS Labs public disclosure. You can be certain that some crims are going to be spending a lot of time in the Iron Bar Hotel and their ill gotten profits confiscated. This deal smelled from the get go with CTS only giving AMD 24 hours notice. Let's hope all involved pay for their criminal activity.
