The terse statement continued: "We have received reports from a few customers of higher system reboots after applying firmware updates".

The company warned that its patches for chip flaws are buggy. That report cited an internal Intel document disclosing that the company identified three issues in microcode updates released over the past week meant to address the vulnerabilities.

AMD still maintains that its processors are not vulnerable to the GPZ Variant 3 exploit (Meltdown, Rogue Data Cache Load) and that no updates are needed to protect systems from it.

Rain and wintry mix moves in before cold air returns
A storm system moving through the area will bring light ice accumulations followed by snow accumulations this afternoon. Hazardous travel conditions are possible across Clarksville-Montgomery County Friday morning due to freezing rain.

Sixth generation Skylake CPUs take the biggest hit from Intel and Microsoft's mitigations, especially in system responsiveness tests which are running at a 21% performance deficit from an unpatched system.

Following announcements of the Google Project Zero security exploits last week, Intel has continued to work closely with our partners with the shared goal of restoring confidence in the security of our customers' data as quickly as possible. If it's determined that a revised firmware update is needed, the company said it will make it available through normal channels.

However, Sloss also said that Google discovered that patching the most severe vulnerabilities would result in significant system slowdowns on the Google Cloud Platform and services.

MLK nephew who spoke at White House: Trump 'racially ignorant'
During the meeting, according to several sources, Trump was flabbergasted by the inclusion of these countries in the deal. However, the president's reported comments have garnered outrage on both sides of the political aisle.

Intel said the older the user's processor is, the bigger the performance hit. In many cases, code will have to recompiled to be protected against these vulnerabilities. Operating systems vendors are rolling out their part of the fix where they can, although it's not clear whether Google's approach can be integrated with that. Red Hat put out an advisory to customers stating its patches to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux kernel may reduce performance by 8% to 19% on highly cached random memory. Vulnerability to Variant 2 has not been demonstrated on AMD processors to date. They will lend an important level of security.

That said, the GPU manufacturer did clarify that their graphics cards are not affected by the said security flaw and that their consumers have nothing to worry about.

"No one should expect that just a container layer will mitigate the issue", said Fernando Montenegro, an analyst with 451 Research.
