New Intel ZombieLoad vulnerability

Security researchers have discovered that the latest CPUs from Intel are still vulnerable to exploits.

The Zombieload vulnerability disclosed earlier this year in May has a second variant that also works against more recent Intel processors, not just older ones, including Cascade Lake, Intel’s latest line of high-end CPUs — initially thought to have been unaffected.

Given the spate of vulnerabilities discovered even in Intel’s latest processors, if you are concerned about the security of your existing lowend box, please ask your provider if they offer AMD servers. If you intend to purchase a new lowend box or feel a need to change provider because your provider does not offer AMD servers yet, you can check with providers in The Whitelist.

We will update The Whitelist with a note next to the provider if we get information that they offer AMD servers.
