ZombieLoad just won’t die, with Intel forced to push out a third patch

Intel has issued another – third – patch to fix a couple of new variations on the ZombieLoad security flaw which poses a threat to the chip giant’s processors.

ZombieLoad is a speculation execution vulnerability, and more specifically an ‘MDS’ (microarchitectural data sampling) variant. It can be leveraged to exploit flaws in the way Intel’s CPUs handle data, potentially allowing hackers to steal all manner of sensitive information like passwords, browsing history and so forth.
