      So if the kernel has buffer overrun vulnerabilities then it's vulnerable to this wacky attack too... I would say that the buffer overflow is the real problem here.

              this is pretty neat research, I wonder what sort of mitigations can be put in place and what the perf hit will be.

                  An attack that works on an AMD CPU? Is this fake news or what? 'Cause everyone, esp. on this site, keeps saying AMD is 100% safe against this kind of stuff...

                    Is this attack even plausible? Seems it is dependent on other faults first?
