Researchers have discovered a vulnerability described as “the most dangerous in the world” so far, affecting billions of personal computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones around the world.
And the website “Times News Now” published a report about the vulnerability, which was discovered by researchers at the Belgian “Q Leuven” University, which was found in the processors of the American company “Intel”, which supply the largest number of electronic devices in the world.
This vulnerability allows attackers and intruders to access sensitive information about their victims such as “fingerprints” or passwords, making all of their personal and banking information available.
Intel had launched security patches over the past period to cover a number of vulnerabilities in its disclosed treatments, but that vulnerability was described by researchers as the most dangerous at all.
“All of the measures Intel has taken so far to enhance the security of its processors were necessary, but it was not enough to stave off the new attack,” said Jo Van Polk, from the computer science department at the Belgian University.
The Belgian researcher explained that this new vulnerability could be called a “bunker”, because it directly targets computer systems and completely controls them.
This vulnerability leaks all sensitive information about users, such as passwords, medical information, or other sensitive information.
The vulnerability technology “injects” malicious software into the systems of electronic devices that run these processors, allowing it to take full control of the drivers for those devices.
