Doesn't make much sense to have the link to the original source flagged off the front page and people submitting news articles about it instead, could we get some mod action here?

This whole thing is fishy. No CVE, no disclosure timeline?

heres a link to the researchers site: https://amdflaws.com/


these all seem to report windows credential guard exploits to be possible, so hypervisor breaches. No word if this is effective in Linux?

a TPM bypass is also noted...albeit im not sure how many linux servers employ the TPS for anything meaningful. most versions are shunned for their inherent security concerns.
