Intel CEO Brian Krzanich tried to assure investors during the earnings call by saying that his company is working “around the clock” with its partners and there is a lot more to be done in addition to pushing security patches.
In the coming future, Intel would make necessary changes to their processor architecture to remove the bugs from the roots. According to Krzanich, new Intel chips releasing later in 2018 will be free of Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities. These flaws have affected almost every Intel chip released in the last decade, and also, AMD CPUs.
Krzanich said he appointed some of the best minds at Intel to deal with the issue.
Ever since the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities were publically disclosed by the GPZ team, Intel has been facing criticism from people across the globe, including tech leaders like Linus Torvalds.
Questions were also raised against the $24 million stock deal made by CEO Brian Krzanich in November last year.
