Kerfuffle of Ryzen

Ian Cutress – writing at eponymous AnandTech – expertly reported AMD Ryzen security flaws yesterday, via and announcement by security research firm CTS-Labs. While this appears to be bad news, let’s leave the exact fix criteria to AMD, of which, has not responded (as of the writing of this post) to the annoucement from CTS-Labs (reportedly, the time-frame was a 24-hour notice, rather than the industry standard notification of 90 Calendar Days…). Stay tuned.

“CTS-Labs’ claims revolve around AMD’s Secure Processor and Promontory Chipset, and fall into four main categories, which CTS-Labs has named for maximum effect. Each category has sub-sections within.” via Ian Cutress, reporting at AnandTech.
