Design flaws in processors from leading chipmakers could let attackers access sensitive information. The flaw impacts more than just Windows, Macs and iOS devices and affects most all computers, phones, tablets, watches, smart TVs and the like.
This is a flaw in the computer CPU chips at its most fundamental level and is NOT a virus, so cannot be eradicated by anti-virus or anti-malware software. It will require several levels of fixes to include no less than: the operating system, BIOs, and CPU driver. At this time, no hardware replacements are necessary, just firmware and software fixes. However, due to repair complexity, if not done properly and by a professional, it could render your device completely useless, otherwise known as "bricking".
