The unrecognized Israeli security company CTS-Labs suddenly issued an announcement stating that there are a series of security flaws in the AMD Zen architecture processor, but only given AMD 24 hours to disclose the details of the vulnerability, but did not follow the 90-day silent period The industry's practice has triggered Fan Xiaobo.
AMD subsequently responded by saying that it had not been notified in advance, and that it has rushed to disclose security vulnerabilities that are not in line with industry practices and are investigating and researching.Many media also questioned the impetus of CTS-LabsBehind the scenes there must be a telling story.
Linus Torvalds, the father of Linux, who has always been quick and quick, is also out of anger for this anomaly and openly expresses his attitude:
"It seems that the IT security industry has been refreshed. If you work in the security field and think that there is morality, I think you should add a line to your business card: "No, really, I'm not blind." I promise. ’”
"I thought that the entire (security) industry was already degraded, but I didn't expect it to be so shameless." When should security workers be as eye-catching as a prostitute? ”
Some people also doubted that this incident was a deliberate attack on AMD and was intended to suppress AMD's stock. However, interestingly, AMD's share price not only did not fall, but rose by 0.12, or 1.04%.
