Intel says newer chips also experience sudden reboots after Meltdown-Spectre fixes
Remember the Meltdown and Spectre flaws that affect all computers and mobile phones out there? Yeah, we’re not done with that, as the software patches that are supposed to fix the hardware vulnerabilities come with other unwanted side effects on top of just slowing down your computer.
Some older Intel-powered machines can reboot unexpectedly once the patches are installed. And unfortunately, Intel just confirmed that its firmware fix for Spectre might do the same thing on newer machines that pack Kaby Lake and Skylake processors.
