Google Explains Meltdown, Spectre Fix Impact On Cloud Services

Google Explains Meltdown, Spectre Fix Impact On Cloud Services

In the meantime, Microsoft this week said it has "temporarily paused" patches for Windows customers running AMD processors after some users reported seeing the "blue screen of death" after the update was applied. Google's Project Zero (GPZ) divided Meltdown and Spectre into three different classes of attack, and Papermaster laid out AMD's planned response to each.

It's been a long week since we first learned about the now infamous Spectre and Meltdown chip vulnerabilities. "We are working quickly with these customers to understand, diagnose and address this reboot issue", Intel said. Gamers should focus on the 3DMark results as they showcase the DX11 performance hit that Intel measured. As other vendors are still working on patching systems, Google notes Meltdown and Spectre are the most hard fixes its engineers have encountered in a decade. Both bugs exploit performance-enhancing features found in modern computer processors used across most PCs, smartphones, and servers.

The slowdowns relate to the way Meltdown and Spectre work. The company previously said that its chips are only susceptible to the first Spectre variant, but in its latest announcement, it admitted that both Spectre variations are "applicable to AMD processors".

Vendors across the industry have been scrambling to issue proper fixes, but the rollout has been far from ideal.

The hope for Pence is to send a strong statement to North Korea, which will be participating in the games, according to a release. Trump's remarks have shelved his often-bellicose rhetoric on Kim Jong-un, North Korea's top leader.

AMD customers have too faced problems earlier this week when Windows updates meant to mitigate the Meltdown and Spectre flaws caused BSOD errors.

While Shenoy has not clarified what systems are experiencing higher reboot rates, it could only be Linux systems for which Intel started rolling out CPU microcode updates yesterday. Cloud providers, which lease servers to multiple clients, are particularly at risk. But with the vulnerabilities now public, security researchers worry it'll only be a matter of time.

Not only are users who applied these updates now facing notable performance degradation of their CPUs, some customers are seeing constant reboots in the wake of Intel's solution to the problem, something Intel addressed in its blog post. Intel said that it will improve communications across all aspects of the security issue, including regular progress reports and releases of data.
