8 More Spectre Vulnerabilities Have Been Found In Intel Chips

We all know very well that the problems that affected Intel processors, and many other brands, have left an awkward certainty for all users. Safety can never be taken for granted and flaws arise in places that were not expected to be vulnerable. As now according to the latest reports, 8 more new spectre vulnerabilities have been found in the chips of the giant chip manufacturer, of course, Intel.

8 More Spectre Vulnerabilities Have Been Found In Intel Chips

Problems that affected Intel processors, and many other brands, have left an awkward certainty for all users. Safety can never be taken for granted and flaws arise in places that were not expected to be vulnerable.

Still recovering from the problem, and with some of the flaws being resolved, new information is now emerging. The analysis performed to eliminate problems eventually revealed new flaws associated with Spectre.

In all, there are 8 new flaws that a team of researchers discovered in Intel processors. At its base are the same and drawing problems that were the cause of the Spectre flaws discovered earlier.

Each of these faults is registered with a specific code, showing that they are distinct and can be used to conduct attacks in isolation. It will also require that the correction is made separately.

The giant chip manufacturer Intel is already aware of the situation and is already working to resolve the new problems affecting its processors. The corrections should be released in 2 moments: the first in May and the second in August.

On the part of the creators of operating systems is also expected soon the necessary corrections. Both the tech giant Apple and the tech giant Microsoft should be preparing updates that fix the issues on their systems.

It is unclear if this will be a problem located only on Intel processors or if, as before, it will be spread to other manufacturers as well. AMD has yet to come out and probably will only do so after having certainties about its processors.

A further front is opened in the extensive process of failures and problems that have affected Intel processors. It was not a properly conducted process, but in the end, the company will have learned to deal with these situations.

What is the difference between a direct and an indirect address instruction ?

Direct addressing means the instruction refers directly to the address being accessed. That is, the instruction encoding itself contains the address of the location. Depending on the instruction set, it may also allow computing a small index relative to the address. When used that way, you can think of that as a direct-indexed mode. (Note: Some processors call ‘direct’ mode ‘absolute’, such as the 6502.)

Indirect addressing uses an address held in a register or other location to determine what memory location to read or write. The idea here is that the instruction itself isn’t directly telling you the address to access, but rather indirectly telling the CPU where to find that address. The processor may also allow you to add a small offset to the indirect address, giving an indirect-indexed addressing mode.

What is ASP.NET? and it's ARCHITECTURE

What is ASP.Net?ASP.Net is a web development platform provided by Microsoft. It is used for creating web-based applications. ASP.Net was first released in the year 2002.
The first version of ASP.Net deployed was 1.0. The most recent version of ASP.Net is version 4.6. ASP.Net is designed to work with the HTTP protocol. This is the standard protocol used across all web applications.

ASP.Net applications can also be written in a variety of .Net languages. These include C#, VB.Net, and J#. In this chapter, you will see some basic fundamental of the .Net framework.

The full form of ASP is Active Server Pages, and .NET is Network Enabled Technologies.
ASP.NET Architecture and its Components ASP.Net is a framework which is used to develop a Web-based application. The basic architecture of the ASP.Net framework is as shown below.
 he architecture of the.Net framework is based on the following key components

What Is Defensive Programming ?

Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed. – WikiPedia


Introduction Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed.
Advantages Defensive programming is an approach to improve software and source code, in terms of:
General qualityMaking the source code comprehensibleMaking the software behave in a predictable mannerDrawback Overly defensive programming, however, may safeguard against errors that will never be encountered, thus incurring run-time and maintenance costs. There is also the risk that the code traps or prevents too many exceptions, potentially resulting i…
