Infosec world in shock as Bitdefender goes public about chip flaw before its marketing department were able to come up with a logo.

SWAPGS attack: The Spectre-like flaw affecting CPUs

@gcluley It even has a boring name that directly relates to the problem!

@gcluley @freakazoid A logo and marketing name would probably detract from their product placement blurb there.

The Red Had advisory about this is much more useful to understand and evaluate the problem (though it claims that AMD is also affected, which I haven't seen mentioned elsewhere):

@gcluley this is why you always have a graphic designer on your security team.

@gcluley So the "I'll make the logo" meme refers to cryptographic attacks?
