New Virus attacks AMD processors
Not that we have enough to worry about in the IT industry.
Great! Just when I thought it was safe to go from Intel to AMD...this happens.
Computing.co.uk reported that Symantec scientists have discovered a way for viruses to penetrate down to the hardware level and attack the AMD chips instead of the OS.
The virus comes in two versions: 32-bit and 64-bit. The two viruses, named w32.bounds and w64.bounds, are considered at low risk, but show how to easily remove them, but the threat does exist that CPU viruses are on their way.
Happy Monday! ;-)
