Intel chip vulnerability can give hackers access to sensitive information

Intel has disclosed a fault in its software chips that, if exploited, could allow hackers to access sensitive information directly from processors, TechCrunch writes. According to Intel, nearly every chip dating back to 2011 has the design flaw, apart from AMD and ARM processors. The vulnerability could affect PCs, laptops, and cloud.

While no attacks have been reported, researchers admit that hackers may not have left any trace on targetted software.
