This is the tech story of the decade. Intel's chips from the last *decade* have all had a security flaw that exposes protected kernel memory space to userland processes. Mitigation will start as soon as next week, but since the patches have to be in the OS, performance hits are rumored to be in the 5% to 30% range.
Chaos ensues and Intel is in for a big hit. What's your take on this? Any predictions?
