SN 645: The Speculation Meltdown

Security Now (Audio)

This week, before we focus upon the industry-wide catastrophe enabled by precisely timing the instructed execution of all contemporary high-performance processor architectures... we examine a change in Microsoft's policy regarding non-Microsoft A/V systems, Firefox Quantum's performance when tracking protections are enabled, the very worrisome hard-coding backdoors in ten of Western Digital's MyCloud drives, and if at first (WEP) and at second (WPA) and at third (WPA2) and at forth (WPS), you don't succeed... try, try, try, try, try yet again... with WPA3... another crucial cryptographic system being developed by a closed, members-only, committee.
