Intel will not be issuing Spectre patches to a number of older Intel processor families, potentially leaving many customers vulnerable to the security exploit. Intel claims the processors affected are mostly implemented as closed systems, so they aren’t at risk from the Spectre exploit, and that the age of these processors means they have limited commercial availability. Intel’s decision not to patch these products could stem from the relative difficulty of patching the Spectre exploit on older systems. Find out more and if your Intel CPU is affected here.
I love technology and how it enhances our lives! Just think, without the Apollo moon missions, we might not have calculators! Imagine!!
