Default Spoiler - More Intel Vulnerabilities

Intel processors are vulnerable to an attack, nicknamed Spoiler, to which AMD processors are immune according to researchers at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute and the University of Lübeck. Intel will not be able to spin this as an industry-wide problem as they did last January when two other vulnerabilities, Spectre and Meltdown, were revealed.

SMoTherSpectre: transient execution attacks through port contention

Looks like OpenBSD's decision to disable SMT by default was very wise.
Linux is for people who hate Windows. BSD is for people who love UNIX.

My favorite Quote:

In my view, if Spoiler was entirely due to sub-par software and memory modules, it would affect AMD processors as well. Intel's statement does not change my take on this news.

AMD's Raven Ridge and Picasso APUs looks even more interesting after that news.
