Excerpt: "The flaw, discovered a year ago by Bitdefender researchers, was initially dismissed by Intel until Bitdefender provided a proof-of-concept attack that showed how the vulnerability could be exploited. "

Do you know if this POC attack simulation was ever released to the public? Any app or website to test for MDS attacks?

Edit. This is not news, this is about any possible app or website one could use to see if the CPU you are currently using vulnerable for those MDS attacks

Oh bloody hell. Is it possible to get a total refund for a purchased Intel CPU and motherboard over these security flaws? Each fix hammers performance.

I can't even sell my E5-2683v3 14 core Xeon chips for $200, most likely due to these security flaws.
