US-CERT Warns of Intel CPU Flaw
Now remember not to long ago when it was discovered that Intel CPUs allow for the running of a hard to detect rootkit? Well this one is worse, allowing an underprivileged user to hack their way into administrator privileges. Of course Intel blames it on the software and of course software developers are going to have to fix it, but it's getting a bit silly now isn't it? Seems to me if I had a computer system of any importance, I'd seriously consider moving over to AMD, as who knows how many more Intel specific exploits are still out there...
