Default Intel chip flaw--but what of it?

Intel has addressed the matter this way: "We are working with these researchers. We take this research and all reports seriously. Currently as far as we know, there are no known exploits in the wild," Intel spokesman George Alfs said in a written statement.

One point worth noting is that this is not an Intel errata per se, which Intel typically details in processor specification updates. This is a theoretical attack from a malicious hacker. Nevertheless, users can minimize the risk by keeping up-to-date on patches and on operating system and security suite updates. Particularly important are BIOS (basic input/output system) and firmware updates for the processors and motherboards
