AMD has published a very brief statement in which it reports that the Spoiler vulnerability, which has just been discovered, does not affect processors produced by reds in any way. The entity explained that this is largely due to the very construction of its units and the architecture used, which does not use the same solutions as Intel chips.
We informed you about the vulnerability Spoiler at the beginning of March. The information revealed at that time showed that the problem concerns all Intel processors counting from the first Core family. Researchers also tested the AMD FX unit, which failed to make the attack. The Reds decided to check what the security of the rest of the systems looks like and now we have learned that also owners of other models with the AMD logo can feel safe.
The company explains that during the loading operation, the Spoiler allows partial access to information regarding the address above the 11 bit address. However, in the case of AMD processor architecture, it is impossible to partially match the information above this address when resolving data loading conflicts, so an attack using the Spoiler vulnerability is impossible.
Reds have a big advantage over Intel, which is not, and according to security researchers, it will never be able to patch this gap in already issued chips. If you are standing in front of the purchase of a new CPU, it is for this reason that you should be interested in the offer of AMD Ryzen units, including, for example, the very popular Ryzen 7 2700X.
