    Haven't bothered to look into it myself yet, but a lot of armchair analysts on Reddit are pointing out that the entire set of claims appears to be fishy.

    I'll have to look into it further.

      The whitepaper says you need to flash the bios or have local admin privileges to take advantage of the flaws. Also the guys behind the security reports have been paid by someone as stated in their legal disclaimer. "you are advised that we may have, either directly or indirectly, an economic interest in the performance of the securities of the companies whose products are the subject of our reports" https://amdflaws.com/disclaimer.html


      All of this comes from a company never heard of before, that was established just last year, this is nothing but propaganda and a hit job because "someone" is scared of zen+.

            Here's a quote from the disclaimer on the website:

            Although we have a good faith belief in our analysis and believe it to be objective and unbiased, you are advised that we may have, either directly or indirectly, an economic interest in the performance of the securities of the companies whose products are the subject of our reports.
            Translation, we're shorting AMD stock to make a quick buck and you're all fools for buying it.

                  My bet goes on this being a smear campaign from Intel.
