A new Plundervolt attack is impacting Intel CPUs.
James McQuiggan, Security Awareness Advocate, Knowbe4:
“With the Intel CPUs in a majority of systems worldwide, it will be important for end users to apply the Intel patches as soon as possible. This vulnerability is now known and the exploit is available for all attackers to utilize against them. Organizations’ internet facing systems are among the largest attack vectors for criminals to attempt to exploit, especially when they are unpatched. These systems present an unnecessary risk for organizations that can be updated with a robust security program, including change management.”
