Don’t be BlindSided: Watch speculative memory probing bypass kernel defenses, give malware root control

Silently side-step software safeguards

Video  Boffins in America, the Netherlands, and Switzerland have devised a Spectre-style attack on modern processors that can defeat defenses that are supposed to stop malicious software from hijacking a computer's operating system. The end result is exploit code able to bypass a crucial protection mechanism and take over a device to hand over root access.…
