Rowhammer rides again as FPGA attack, RSA again reportedly up for sale, anti-theft kit to nuke laptops, etc

It's just me

Re: Rowhammer/JackHammer

As much as I would like that, I doubt it, as a prerequisite of these attacks is for the attacker to already have their code running on the victims computer. In the case of consumer devices it's already game-over at that point. The only place these attacks are really a concern is situations such as cloud computing where you share the hardware with untrusted third parties, or perhaps DRM where the untrusted party is the owner of the hardware.
