Intel warns about installing its chip patch
Torvalds was right Intel is chicken with its head cut off
A day after Linus Torvalds warned that Intel’s patching for a severe security flaw on its chips was “garbage” Intel has warned users not to upgrade.
The warning will come too late for those who already installed them because you can’t uninstall them and will now suffer from a terrible curse reserved for those who listen to what Intel tells them.
Let’s be clear about this; there is no excuse. Intel had six months to fix the problem and issued a patch which has a nasty habit of causing “higher system reboots.” It should be said that it only released this patch after denying that there was much of a problem.
According to Executive Vice President Navin Shenoy, on the Intel Newsroom site, the current advice is:
“We recommend that OEMs, cloud service providers, system manufacturers, software vendors and end users stop deployment of current versions, as they may introduce higher than expected reboots and unpredictable system behaviour.
