Default Major flaw in millions of Intel chips revealed

Quote:
A serious flaw in the design of Intel's chips will require Microsoft, Linux and Apple to update operating systems for computers around the world.

Intel has not yet released the details of the vulnerability, but it is believed to affect chips in millions of computers from the last decade.

The UK's National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) said it was aware of the issue and that patches were being produced.

Some experts said a software fix could slow down computers.

Ooof

Apparently early indications on Linux are that a fix results in no performance hit in some circumstances, but quite a big one in others.

Affects all Intels since Pentium Pro
