A consumer class action lawsuit was filed against Intel, and moreover, its Intel Chip, a few months ago in January of 2018. The Intel Chip Class Action alleges that Intel chips have security vulnerabilities, known as Spectre and Meltdown, and these security flaws can expose a computer’s sensitive information to hackers. To note, way back in 1995, Intel began designing the majority of its chips to perform a process known as speculative execution, which is intended to increase performance by allowing a chip to predict its next set of instructions. However, in January 2018, researchers from Google’s Project Zero publicly disclosed “serious security flaws” existing in most desktop, laptop and cloud computers, and smartphones. Specifically, they disclosed that speculative execution creates security vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers to steal sensitive information, thus, the company being slammed with a major Intel Chip Lawsuit. Moreover, the only patches available for these security vulnerabilities require extensive changes at the root levels of the operating system which, when installed, may significantly reduce a computer’s performance. Web hosting providers and other heavy computer users also experience performance problems.
