At some point I'll have to ask for my money back...
Researchers discover new security flaw in all modern Intel processors:
Well, I think we should. If you buy a new car and the air condition turns out to be a fire-hazard, the solution isn't to remove the AC you paid for, but to have it fixed.
I really think they should and am still surprised this hasn't been taken to court so far. You paid for something that's now either a whole lot slower or insecure.
I agree. It's certainly not a battle for you or me to fight, though. But imagine running a huge server farm with thousands of machines and suddenly you got to stock up by ~20%.
@fribbledom can we just... get rid of speculative execution at this point? surely things are fast enough without it now
@fribbledom 😂 Let me know how you get on!
@fribbledom I don't understand why this article doesn't name the issue but does include BitDefender's marketing stuff?
I wish I had a better article to link to, but I'm afraid all the good ones I've read are written in German.
@fribbledom Ooo, another bug entry for /proc/cpu!
@fribbledom HAhahahahahah.... there is nothing to do. Life just gets a little bit worse. Weh.
@fribbledom fucking straight up, I need my 6800K to last until AMD launches TR5. These nerfs are making that next to impossible.
@fribbledom Ride the Spectre waves all the way!
@fribbledom Wait, the Spectre patches didn't patch Spectre 1a?! The Project Zero guys ought to get into it I guess.
@fribbledom If their security problems keep up, someday soon you’ll be able to just take the money back.
@fribbledom Speculative execution was a mistake.
