TheLostWanderer, 06 Jan 2018Even the Exynos8895 version of S8? I dont have SD835.If its use Arm tech ( instruction set ) its affected.
Even much more customised Arm tech like Apple A serie soc are affected.

Anonymous, 08 Jan 2018So that's why everyone will receive a software update in order to fix these hardware architect... moreIt's rather simple really.
One part of Spectre can not be patched away in any way. This part of Spectre is found in many/all OoO chips based on the ARM architecture and pretty much all Inten processors still in use, as well as some IBM server chips.
Then there is a second Spectre bug that may or may not be patchable through software. It also affects the same processors and could possibly affect some/all AMD processors, but for AMD processors it requires a very specific bios setting to be affected, a setting normally not turned on.
Meltdown is a different beast. It affects all Intel processors since 1995 and is a far more serious threat to safety. Going by Apple's actions, one would guess their A-xx SoCs may be vulnerable too. The problem with Meltdown is that it's a gaping wound the size of a football and they now patch it with a small bandage, only covering a small part of the wound, hoping it will stop the bleeding.
Anonymous, 08 Jan 2018I think, it was AMD who stated this (having different architecture) and they are mostly right.... moreSo that's why everyone will receive a software update in order to fix these hardware architecture flops - because it cannot be fixed via software?
The logic is hard to understand.
Anonymous, 07 Jan 2018Apple claims their devices are not affected by this because of their OS architecture.I think, it was AMD who stated this (having different architecture) and they are mostly right.
If Apple stated this, they are lying , because theres no way OS (Software) Architecture can protect you from CPU (Hardware) design flaw.
Anonymous, 07 Jan 2018Apple claims their devices are not affected by this because of their OS architecture.Apple can claim a lot. Meltdown can be (partially) patched in the hopes they won't find other ways to abuse the bug meanwhile. Spectre is different, one part can be sorta patched, the other can not be patched, no matter the OS. So to say they are not vulnerable due to the OS is total BS.
Apple claims their devices are not affected by this because of their OS architecture.
TechHorizons, 07 Jan 2018Samsung is affected by one of them only not both like the SD835 ... forgot which one , Meltdow... moreThank you for your reply. I found on Google that SD835 is affected by both issues, unlike Exynos8895. Exynos chipsets aren't all affected, it depends on the model, so till now, the Exynos verson of S8 seems to be unnafected, or I simply didn't find informations on the internet which would confirm it's other way around. Just it's confirmed, both S9 versions will be affected.
TheLostWanderer, 06 Jan 2018Even the Exynos8895 version of S8? I dont have SD835.Samsung is affected by one of them only not both like the SD835 ... forgot which one , Meltdown or specter , google it
All those comments in the past that their iPhone was so much more secure than any android device, and then this. Just so funny.
And all the people that got themselves a phone with SD625, gratz, you now own one of the most secure devices you can get.
In all, Apple particularly having go patch against Meltdown on their iOS devices is pretty painful. It's the most nasty bug of them all and the patch can have serious performance drops.
Considering Apple Chips are based on Intel Architecture so yeah, itll meltdown to smitherings.
NiceGuy, 06 Jan 2018Lol, A11 is intel piece?? It's manufactured by TSMC.. CMIIWLol. TSMC is a manufacturer/factory, not a chip maker.
TechHorizons, 05 Jan 2018all Mobile CPUs has the problem. all phones have it.Even the Exynos8895 version of S8? I dont have SD835.
option 1. these hackers really exist and they broke governments Zero Day acces to all devices which we all know is real
option 2. its a fake news and virus has been made by corporations agenda and will be uploaded by sowtfare developers on some devices to show it really exist to force people and companies to buy new devices.
