Intel chip flaw: Math unit may spill crypto secrets from apps to malware

And in other news .....

Boffins (well why not?) have revealed that they can extract sensitive information using Thermal imaging and self learning Neural Network that graphically plots any passwords it finds base on heat spots emanating from different areas of any Intel or AMD chip.

AMD chips are easier and can be exploited from a greater distance as against ARM chips which need more sensitive heat sensing/imaging equipment.

This exploit can only be mitigated by switching your computer off but not on again.
