    No Windows Fix Just yet for the Intel Bug That Crashes CPUs

    June 27th, 2017 by

    “Some Intel CPU models are affected by a bug that crashes computers when a certain sequence of operations are being processed.

    The bug was discovered by a developer working on the OCaml compiler and was reported to Intel last year. Intel rolled out a fix for the issue in the form of a microcode errata in April and May 2017.

    Intel says the issue affects Kaby LakeSkylakeXeon v5Xeon v6, and some Pentium and Core X-Series v6 models.

    While Intel says the issue “may cause unpredictable system behavior,” Debian developers said in a security advisory that the bug “could cause spurious errors, such as application and system
    misbehavior, data corruption, and data loss.””
