Academics Discover New CPU Side-Channel Attack Named BranchScope

Academics Discover New CPU Side-Channel Attack Named BranchScope

BranchScope.png

Academics say that BranchScope is the first side-channel attack that targets “direction prediction” and that the technique can also be used to retrieve content stored inside SGX enclaves, secure areas of Intel CPUs, previously thought to be untouchable.

 

The research team also tested their technique in field tests and said they successfully retrieved data from three recent Intel x86_64
 
processors — Sandy Bridge, Haswell, and Skylake. The team said the attack can be launched from user space (no admin rights) and has an error rate of less than 1%.

 

Researchers also say that because this is a novel attack, there are no mitigations currently in place for BranchScope attacks. Spectre patches (meant to fix TBT-based (more…)

A bombshell four-page “FISA memo” alleging egregious surveillance abuse by the FBI, DOJ and Obama administration, specifically names FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, according to the Daily Beast.

The GOP-authored memo made waves last week after it was made available to the full House of Representatives for viewing. With over 60 GOP lawmakers calling for its release, Capitol Hill sources on both sides of the aisle tell The Daily Beast that it’s only a matter of time before the general public is allowed to view the document – which is likely to stoke already-inflamed tensions (more…)

The fragile 11 cm by 2.5 cm (4.3 by one inch) piece of papyrus, dated by the Israel Antiquities Authority to the 7th century B.C.E, that was presented Tuesday at a news conference in Jerusalem, has two lines of Hebrew script:

“From the king’s maidservant, from Na’arat, jars of wine, to Jerusalem,” it reads, suggesting it was part of a document detailing tax payments or the transfer of goods to storehouses in Jerusalem.

Archeologists judge the document plundered from a cave by antiquities robbers, “the earliest extra-biblical source to mention Jerusalem in Hebrew writing.”

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu wrote on Twitter: “Hey UNESCO, an ancient papyrus dating to the 1st Temple 2700 yrs ago has been (more…)

Symbolic? Fishing vessel named ‘American Eagle’ catches fire for a second time this year

An American-flagged fishing vessel caught fire while docked in Kaohsiung harbor today, August 4, 2016. Nine fire trucks and two fire boats were dispatched to deal with the blaze.
