Intel, industry scramble to mitigate ZombieLoad side-channel processor vulnerability

May 14, 2019
  • CVE-2018-12126 is a flaw that could lead to information disclosure from the processor store buffer.
  • CVE-2018-12127 is an exploit of the microprocessor load operations that can provide data to an attacker about CPU registers and operations in the CPU pipeline.
  • CVE-2018-12130 is the most serious of the three issues and involved the implementation of the microprocessor fill buffers and can expose data within that buffer.
  • CVE-2019-11091 is a flaw in the implementation of the "fill buffer," a mechanism used by modern CPUs when a cache-miss is made on L1 CPU cache.
