Main processors (CPUs) of computers are designed to run multiple applications simultaneously. This is beneficial for efficiency, but poses a security risk. Researchers at TU Graz and the Helmholtz Center for Information Security have found a novel method that allows attackers to read data from the memory of CPUs by analyzing the processor's energy consumption. They call this method of attack "Collide+Power".
