Hate to ruin your day, but... Boffins cook up fresh Meltdown, Spectre CPU design flaw exploits

jason 53

this means any new pc for the next 6month - 18 months currently/future on the shelf say " best buy " should be recalled.

or at least sold with a warning that they are flawed.

Re: Does Intel going to offers %20 discount on buying buggy CPUs?

the real trouble is that all new still on the shelf PC's cant be fixed. and to redesign a new chip is 2 years+. that means the next 2 years all chips will ship with this flaw and they will all be insecure. there is NO fix just a patch that makes it slightly harder. New PC's need to have a warning customers about this flaw, but no one is speaking about this cause they don't want to tank new sales. WHAT is INTEL Doing to tell the customer today about they chips that are just unfix-able . that patch will only make it slightly harder to exploit these chips for the next 2 years.
