Not to ruin your Friday, but it seems we have a sequel. Spectre Next Generation refers to eight new vulnerabilities Intel CPUs posses, some of which Heise suggests could be even worse than the previously revealed flaws. Intel's official response can be read at The Inquirer, AMD have stated they are investigating to see if there is any possible way their chips and vulnerable while ARM decided not to comment at all. One of the more disturbing vulnerabilities can cross between or out of VMs, rendering your sandbox unsafe. It is still early yet so we cannot say exactly what product lines are vulnerable, nor do we have specifics on the the eight flaws but you can expect to hear a lot more in the coming days.
"The flaws, first reported by German tech site Heise which said it has been given full technical details on the vulnerabilities and said Intrl had reserved Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) numbers for them."
