In the framework of the discovered vulnerabilities of Intel processors, AMD has issued a statement in which it ensures that its processes are completely exempt from the problems of RIDL and Fallout, the vulnerabilities that Intel calls MDS. Yes, Lisa Su’s company has preferred to cover their backs with a written statement as meticulously as possible, measuring each word:
” We believe that our products are not susceptible to ” Fallout »or« RIDL »thanks to the hardware security checks of our architecture. We have not managed to replicate these exploits in AMD products and we do not know that it was achieved externally. “
This is what the company said in the official statement, I have reached these conclusions based on internal tests and going to the same companies who found the MDS. Fallout “it refers to the recent vulnerabilities, and not to the same one that CTS Labs found in 2018 and that affected the memory management of AMD Zen processors.
