Apple's macOS 10.13.2 Partially Patches That Nasty Intel CPU Security Flaw
The “massive Intel processor design flaw” debacle is starting to get to a whole new level pretty soon, especially that the upcoming patches implemented by OS vendors at software level are expected to have a dramatical impact on the processing power.
While Intel can’t fix the said security flaw in its Intel CPUs released over the past decade, OS vendors are forced to redesign how their kernel works. macOS, Linux, and Windows systems are affected if they are installed on machines powered by an Intel processor.
While Linux and Windows users will soon get a patch that fixes the bug in the Intel CPUs, developer Alex Ionescu reports today via Twitter that Apple already fixed the security vulnerability in its macOS operating system last month with the macOS 10.13.2 update.
