I don't think it detects all of them.
You can check with powershell. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...ngs-powershell

Only time you really need to be concerned is if you have any sensitive data in your pc. If just for gaming, make sure you have the latest update from MS and you are set.

They are patched for current bugs and had redesign to restore the lost performance. However, they are still based on the core architecture (but heavily modified in some areas). There are bound to be other holes popping up.

My feeling is intel won't be safe till Ocean Cove (desktop) or laptop variant comes out. Safest bet is AMD for now though these security researchers will find exploits given an couple of years of being able to dig around the code.

hold my beer.

Spoiler!

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.
Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.

That could be extremely bad for the financial trading sector, as they rely on RDMA to do their work. They also require internet connections to their computer clusters, so no option to turn it off or secure their network from the outside. Not a single company is going to turn the feature off and take a guaranteed loss in millions of dollars profit against the threat of a possible loss of profit.
I didnt see whether this required local access or not though. They talk about the attack, but no mention of whether the attack can be executed remotely against the target. Hopefully not as that would solve much of the problem.

I love the comments, especially proposed DILDO (damaging Intel leak data option) name for the 'feature'. LOL
