ALERT: Security Exploits Put Sensitive Data at Risk
Researchers recently discovered structural defects, predominantly in Intel processors from over the last decade, that can allow hackers to access sensitive data. A series of updates and patches have been issued to address these security exploits. However, it has been reported that each patch can result in a significant performance impact – meaning businesses may need to consider premature hardware upgrades or increased server capacity to ensure they maintain both security and performance.
