Ha még érdekel valakit, újabb Intel CPU bug:…

Nem érte volna el az ingerküszöbömet, ha a Digitalocean VPS szolgáltató külön mailben fel nem hívja rá a figyelmet.


A Digitalocean leveléből:


Hi there,

Intel released a statement regarding issues with certain CPUs when running in virtualized environments. When encountered, these issues manifest with unexpected page faults. On DigitalOcean’s environment, security implications could include unpredictable system behavior on a Droplet, such as a virtual machine shutdown due to page faults. Additionally, a stale value may be used by hardware later. If left unmitigated, this vulnerability could allow malicious users to disclose information at the kernel level, or enable user level application privileges for otherwise unauthorized users.

We acted quickly to implement our mitigations, ensuring our users are not vulnerable to any attacks, and we completed our roll out of updated microcode across our platform earlier this afternoon.

Úgy sejtem, lassan lesz olyan felhőszoklgáltató, aki majd azzal hírdeti magát, hogy AMD processzorú szerveren fut a virtuális géped.
