This one is gonna blow your socks off, now we not only have to worry about software attacks, we now have to worry about hardware hacks that if exploited correctly and distributed to bring a large portion of the worlds computers to it’s knee’s. It will interesting to see what the Intel folks say. I guess it is time to go inventory how many Intel machines we have and how many AMD machines we have.

Only time will tell if this report pans out but oh man these folks are getting clever. This does not just effect Windows machines in fact the commentary indicates that unix based machines are very susceptible. [Slashdot]
