A Security bug, primarily focused on Intel CPUs at first, became well-known across the tech community over the last few days, with far-reaching concerns for security across swathes of chips, and affecting multiple manufacturers - not simply Intel alone. Intel, AMD, and Google have now all published official responses to the vulnerabilities, which are nicknamed Meltdown and Spectre.
Whatever your system, one of the best gaming keyboards wouldn’t go amiss.
Google’s Project Zero posted an in-depth analysis of their findings into the potential security bypass through speculated execution. This method allows a CPU to increase performance by essentially guessing what needs to be done, before it is requested. Essentially, it allows malevolent users to read system memory that should otherwise be entirely out of bounds, if they so wished to (and have the expertise).
