Yesterday, Intel disclosed a new attack on its processor dubbed "ZombieLoad", following in the footsteps of last year's "Spectre" and "Meltdown" security snafu.
You have heard of Spectre and Meltdown, and now you can add Zombieload to the list of so-called side-channel Speculative Execution hacks which can steal data from modern processors. According to the demonstration, it would even be possible to monitor what someone was doing even if they were using a privacy-focused browser like Tor, in addition to a virtual machine.
Discovered by researchers from Graz University of Technology, the flaw has been already been patched earlier by Apple and Google, and the fix was today part of Microsoft'sPatch Tuesday. So, always keep your system updated with the latest security patches in order to stay protected from the vulnerability. Some relief for Intel is that many of its latest processors in the 8 and 9 gen processors families are safe from the exploits which allow the Zombieload Attack.
Those who discovered the attacks include researchers from the Austrian university TU Graz, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the University of MI, the University of Adelaide, KU Leuven in Belgium, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Saarland University in Germany and Cyberus, BitDefender, Qihoo360 and Oracle, Wired says. This would be a drastic step to take for ordinary consumers, but enterprise and datacentre customers with lots of sensitive information stored may want to consider it, although it will come at the cost of performance. It's also released code updates to mitigate the risk.
