New Spectre V2 Attack Impacts Linux Systems On Intel CPUs

Slashdot Linux - Sob, 04/13/2024 - 21:34
An anonymous reader shared this report from BleepingComputer: Researchers have demonstrated the "first native Spectre v2 exploit" for a new speculative execution side-channel flaw that impacts Linux systems running on many modern Intel processors. Spectre V2 is a new variant of the original Spectre attack discovered by a team of researchers at the VUSec group from VU Amsterdam. The researchers also released a tool that uses symbolic execution to identify exploitable code segments within the Linux kernel to help with mitigation. The new finding underscores the challenges in balancing performance optimization with security, which makes addressing fundamental CPU flaws complicated even six years after the discovery of the original Spectre.... As the CERT Coordination Center (CERT/CC) disclosed yesterday, the new flaw, tracked as CVE-2024-2201, allows unauthenticated attackers to read arbitrary memory data by leveraging speculative execution, bypassing present security mechanisms designed to isolate privilege levels. "An unauthenticated attacker can exploit this vulnerability to leak privileged memory from the CPU by speculatively jumping to a chosen gadget," reads the CERT/CC announcement. "Current research shows that existing mitigation techniques of disabling privileged eBPF and enabling (Fine)IBT are insufficient in stopping BHI exploitation against the kernel/hypervisor." "For a complete list of impacted Intel processors to the various speculative execution side-channel flaws, check this page updated by the vendor."

Amazon mora plačati 525 milijonov dolarjev

Slo-Tech - Sob, 04/13/2024 - 11:10
Amazon mora plačati 525 milijonov dolarjev Slo-Tech - Zvezno sodišče v Illinoisu je v sredo odločilo, da mora Amazon plačati 525 milijonov odškodnine zaradi kršitve treh patentov podjetja Kove. V civilnem postopku, ki se je začel leta 2018, je porota ugotovila, da je Amazon kršil patente, ki pokrivajo "shranjevanje in priklic ogromnih količin podatkov". Amazon jih je kršil v storitvah AWS Amazon S3, DynamoDB in podobno. Amazon se z odločitvijo ne strinja in je že napovedal pritožbo. Več na Slo-Techu.

Intel upokojuje serijo K 13. generacije Raptor Lake

Slo-Tech - Sob, 04/13/2024 - 11:10
Intel upokojuje serijo K 13. generacije Raptor Lake Slo-Tech - Intel je sporočil, da bodo 24. maja letos prenehali prodajati procesorje iz serije K iz 13. generacije (Raptor Lake). Konec prodaje pomeni, da bodo prenehali sprejemati naročila, nato pa bodo 28. junija odpremili še zadnje pošiljke. Odtlej teh procesorjev ne bo možno več kupiti od proizvajalca. V praksi to pomeni, da jih bo še vedno možno dobiti, a bo zaloge čedalje manj, kar lahko vodi tudi v povišanje cen. Več na Slo-Techu.

Milijoni esejev so že napisani s ChatGPT Slo-Tech - Proizvajalec orodja Turnitin, ki se uporablja za preverjanja avtentičnosti in izvirnosti pisnih del, torej za iskanje plagiatov, že leto dni ponuja tudi prepoznavanje z umetno inteligenco napisanih del. V tem času so pregledali 200 milijonov izdelkov in ugotovili, da jih ima kar desetina vsaj 20 odstotkov vsebine, ki je prepisana od umetne inteligence. Tri odstotke pa jih je v celoto - več kot 80-odstotno - napisala umetna inteligenca. Več na Slo-Techu.
