Nvidia says its GPU hardware is 'immune' to Meltdown and Spectre flaws

In the meantime, Microsoft this week said it has "temporarily paused" patches for Windows customers running AMD processors after some users reported seeing the "blue screen of death" after the update was applied.

"Microsoft has resumed updating the majority of AMD devices with the Windows operating system security update to help protect against the chipset vulnerabilities known as Spectre and Meltdown", the company said. The company was previously advising its bigger customers of the recommendation to delay installation "quietly". Google's own fix for Variant 2 of the Spectre CPU attacks, considered to be the hardest to patch without impacting performance, uses software patches, rather than disabling the affected CPU features.

Intel has identified three issues in updates released over the past week for "microcode", or firmware, the newspaper reported, citing a confidential document the company had shared with some customers that it had reviewed.

According to Business Insider , Google informed Intel of the security flaws in June of previous year . The transactions occurred in late November, before the flaw was public knowledge.

But Nvidia still has to plug the security hole even if it could affect the performance of its GPUs, as is the case with other fixes for Spectre and Meltdown, though Nvidia hasn't detailed any ramifications the patches may carry.

Navin Shenoy, general manager of the company's data center group, also said reiterated what Intel CEO Brian Krzanich emphasized in his Security-First Pledge about Intel's commitment to transparency in reporting progress in handling the Google Project Zero exploits. However, Intel still recommends end-users should apply the updates for both OS and hardware. We are working quickly with these customers to understand, diagnose and address this reboot issue.

Meltdown, for those unaware, is the term coined to describe a flaw in modern Intel CPUs, which leaves a computer's kernel memory - the encrypted part of a system used to store sensitive information, like passwords - susceptible to hackers.
