Transient Execution Attacks That Leaks Arbitrary Kernel Memory (ETH Zurich)

A technical paper titled “Inception: Exposing New Attack Surfaces with Training in Transient Execution” was published by researchers at ETH Zurich. Abstract: "To protect against transient control-flow hijacks, software relies on a secure state of microarchitectural buffers that are involved in branching decisions. To achieve this secure state, hardware and software mitigations restrict or... » read more
