Hell Yeah! Another security vulnerability has been discovered in Intel chips that affects the processor’s speculative execution technology—like Specter and Meltdown—and could potentially be exploited to access sensitive information, including encryption related data.

Dubbed Lazy FP State Restore, the vulnerability (CVE-2018-3665) within Intel Core and Xeon processors has just been confirmed by Intel, and vendors are now rushing to roll out security updates in order to fix the flaw and keep their customers protected.

The company has not yet released technical details about the vulnerability, but since the vulnerability resides in the CPU, the flaw affects all devices running Intel Core-based microprocessors regardless of the installed operating systems, except some modern versions of Windows and Linux distributions.
