Researchers find way to hack your CPU via AMD and Intel’s frequency boosts

A new family of side-channel CPU exploits have been discovered. Researchers are calling it Hertzbleed, and theoretically it could affect anyone, though mostly it’s cryptography engineers that need to be alert.

There’s actually been some debate from Intel over whether it’s a practical threat to most people. For that reason, the company has decided not to patch it, despite having requested a longer embargo before the research was to be published.
