Intel #confirms reports of #hacking #vulnerability in its #chips, promises to #fix asap

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The world’s top chip maker Intel Corp on Wednesday confirmed a report about a potential security flaw in its Chips that is vulnerable to hacking and promised to fix the bug as soon as possible.

Security researchers at Google said they discovered serious security flaws in Intel chips and other chipmakers. The security bug, if used for malicious purposes, has the potential to improperly gather sensitive data from computing devices. “Recent reports that these exploits are caused by a ‘bug’ or a ‘flaw’ and are unique to Intel products are incorrect,” Intel was quoted as saying.

Intel also said that the vulnerability is not unique to their products. It argued that “many types of computing devices – with many different vendors’ processors and operating systems – are susceptible to these exploits.”

However, Intel said it is working with its tech partners such as AMD, ARM Holdings and several operating system vendors, to develop an industry-wide approach to resolve this issue “promptly and constructively.”

AMD said in a statement that it believes its chips are safe because they use different designs, reported Los Angeles Times.

“Intel has begun providing software and firmware updates to mitigate these exploits,” and average computer user won’t experience significant slowdowns as it’s fixed, noted press statement from Intel.

Qld man on child porn charges: reports

A number of media outlets report Garry Amey – who was found by two passers-by in the ocean at Wagnetti Beach on Saturday – is due to face court on numerous charges next month.

His wife of 38 years, Arlene Amey, says any charges would be news to her.

“I don’t know anything about it,” she told AAP on Monday night.

Earlier in the day Ms Amey described feeling “all the things you can think of” when she was told her 60-year-old husband – who went missing on October 11 – had been found alive.

The news was especially shocking after a search involving 30 SES volunteers, police and a helicopter was called off after 10 days without a trace of her husband.

Making a Difference: Drug Free Collier reports that teen drug use on a decline

Any use of drugs by our young people is unacceptable. Sad but true though, we know the reality is that teens are abusing drugs. But there is some good news to be found in the latest Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey which shows an overall reduction in local teen substance abuse.

For high schoolers, alcohol use is reported to be 29.
