Intel, however, won't be issuing any patches

Might as well just tell us how much the NSA paid you if you are going to be this obvious about it being intentional.

Why would the NSA pay itself?

This SMT bug has been known as CAN-2005-0109, which was originally for Pentium 4.

There is no such thing as a 100% secure CPU or OS. Well, perhaps if you disconnect it from the Internet and all other forms of Telecommunications, and use it as a stand alone computer at your desk with ZERO connections to the outside World. Then there is a good chance it will be 'secure'. Apart from this drastic step however, no Computational Machine (computer) is secure. Every one can be exploited if you know how to get inside.

INTELS global CPU weakness adds local strength. My home Xeon workstation is protected by ... Dan Wesson.

Speaking of Intel, one of their old (now empty) places was bought by a guy who is going to use the place for bitcoin mining. If anyone wants a link please let me know. (I don't want to spam)

Researchers warn of new Hyper-Threading-based Intel CPU vulnerability - TechSpot

'Last week, the developers of open source operating system OpenBSD disabled hyperthreading on Intel processors to protect against the vulnerability. '

'Researchers say they were able to use TLBleed to extract cryptography keys from another running program in 99.8 percent of tests on an Intel Skylake Core i7-6700K. Tests using other types of Intel processors had similarly high success rates. '

'Gras believes AMD processors could be at risk from TLBleed, as these also run multiple threads simultaneously. '

'It isn’t requesting a CVE number for the flaw and has even refused to pay the researchers a bug bounty reward (via HackerOne) for their discovery. '

'Intel appears unconcerned about any potential threats posed by TLBleed. '
