How to protect against Meltdown, Spectre flaws

"We previously said that we expected our performance impact should not be significant for average computer users, and the data we are sharing today support [s] that expectation on these platforms", said executive vice president of Intel's data center group Navin Shenoy.

"Following announcements of the Google Project Zero security exploits last week, Intel has continued to work closely with our partners with the shared goal of restoring confidence in the security of our customers' data as quickly as possible", the Intel boss wrote. "If this requires a revised firmware update from Intel, we will distribute that update through the normal channels". The basis for this is something called volumetric video, which also captures depth or volume data in addition to pixels, thus giving you a much larger data set and new ways to manipulate it. These individual data points, called voxels, are being used to gain new perspectives in the field of VR.

Meantime, on the other side of the CPU fence, AMD has published an update on its processor's security regarding Spectre (as Meltdown doesn't affect AMD chips, only Intel ones).

Android users need to check their devices regularly to see if there is an available update, as there is no one update for all Android-based phones. The end result looks pretty cool as you're able to change perspectives as desired and freeze a scene so you can rotate the view for a better angle.

(Reuters) - Hackers who breached JPMorgan Chase & Co's computer network earlier this year also tried to infiltrate other financial institutions, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the investigation. After applying the patch, users reported that their systems failed to boot or that they received a blue screen.

Nvidia's software developers will be, like AMD, providing collaborative help to OS vendors to strengthen mitigations for affected CPUs that could be affected by For GPZ Variant 1 and 2 (Spectre).

It said it had no reason to believe the drivers were troubled by the second flaw, dubbed Meltdown. The companies have also smaller adjustments that together make sweeping collection more difficult. ARM says around 5 percent of more than 120 billion chips using its designs shipped since 1991 were impacted by Spectre, and significantly fewer by Meltdown.
