More information: Newsarticle
International IT security research teams headed by Daniel Gruss of IAIK have released information on two new forms of cyberattack that exploit hardware.
Reliable, bug-free computer hardware provides the foundation for secure software. Now, vulnerabilities on the hardware side are increasingly attracting the attention of hackers and developers alike, not least following the discovery of the Meltdown and Spectre side-channel attacks by TU Graz researchers in 2018.
