Intel addresses security flaws with company's chips at CES 2018At CES 2018, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich discuses the company's plan to combat the Meltdown and Spectre security flaws.
Today is a day where we all come together to celebrate the lifeblood of our amazing industry. And that's really about innovation. But before we start, I wanna take a moment to thank the industry for coming together for another purpose. To address the recent security research findings. Reported as meltdown in spectrum. In the collaboration amongst so many companies to address this industry wide issue across several different processor architectures has been truly remarkable, the security is job number one for intel and our industry So the primary focus of our decisions and our discussions have been to keep our customers' data safe. As of now, we have not received any information that these exploits have been used to obtain customer data. And we're working tirelessly on these issues To ensure it stays that way, the best thing you can do to make sure you data remains safe si to pry any updates from your operating system,vendor and system manufacture as soon as they became available for our processors. Products introduced in the past five years. Intel expects to issue updates for more than 90% of them within a week and the remaining by the end of January. We believe the performance impact of these updates is highly workload dependent. And as a result we expect some workloads may have a larger impact than others. So we'll continue working with the industry to minimize the impact on those workloads over time. When we come together like this there are endless possibilities.
