Earlier this week, a well-respected security researcher released new details on a hardware flaw in a brand new processor chip made by Apple. It would allow for two applications running on the operating system to covertly communicate and exchange data. It can be exploited regardless of user status or account privileges. Worst of all, it’s built into Apple’s M1 chip design, meaning that it cannot be patched or fixed without new redesign.
Oh, and one more thing: it’s not really a threat to you or your organization in any meaningful sense.
