Two attacks dubbed RIDL and Fallout exploit a set of four vulnerabilities collectively known as Microarchitectural Data Sampling (MDS) vulnerabilities - a name given by Intel. The flaws affect Intel CPUs released since 2008, the researchers say.
An attacker running unprivileged code on a vulnerable machine could use MDS security flaws to extract information from the operating system kernel, processes, the Software Guard eXtensions (SGX) enclave, and CPU-internal operations.
The researchers say that only Intel CPUs are affected.
Fallout also impacts all modern Intel processors, including those of the 9th generation, which include in-silicon mitigations for Meltdown.
This protection, however, "makes them more vulnerable to Fallout, compared to older generation hardware," say the developers of the attack.
