Summary

A third party CPU hardware utilizing speculative execution may be vulnerable to cache timing side-channel analysis known as Variant 4 or SpectreNG. These vulnerabilities have been referred to as part of “SpectreNG” in the media, given their similarity to previously disclosed vulnerabilities. An attacker with local user access may be able to read arbitrary privileged data or system register values by utilizing cache timing side-channel analysis.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2018-3639**
DESCRIPTION:** Multiple Intel CPU’s could allow a local attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by utilizing sequences of speculative execution and speculative execution of memory reads before the addresses of all prior memory writes are known. By conducting targeted cache side-channel attacks, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to bypass security restrictions and gain read access to privileged memory. Note: This vulnerability is the Speculative Store Bypass (SSB), also known as Variant 4 or “SpectreNG”.
