Latest CPUs Also Suffer From Frequent Rebooting ProblemIntel says firmware updates it developed to help protect users against the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities have been causing not just older chipsets but also its newest CPUs - in both client devices and data center servers - to reboot much more frequently than they should.
AMD PCs can now install Microsoft's Windows update with fixes for Meltdown and Spectre and the bug that caused boot problems.
A team of researchers has earned more than $100,000 from Google for an Android exploit chain that can be used to hack the company's Pixel phone remotely simply by getting the targeted user to access a malicious website.
Further testing by Intel has revealed that unexpected reboots are affecting its newer processors, not just its older Broadwell and Haswell chips as it originally thought.
Roughly a week after the update was released, many machines still lack the fix for the critical CPU vulnerabilities.
