    Yet again CTS showing their true colours by contacting the press first, instead of contacting AMD directly for updates.

    Terrible ploy by the people behind CTS etc all around. Sure there are problems if you have physical access to hardware around security. Nice to see AMD doing the correct thing as usual.

    I'm not very in the loop here in the hardware sphere and industry as I used to be at MSI having said that ... thanks for the reporting Hexus. I have a lot of respect for most all forms of journalism.

    No real surprise here. Local admin needed to exploit your machine... well doh!
    Just a smear/stock fraud scheme. Shame they werent investigated by the SCC.

    It's nice to see AMD indirectly telling CTS to get stuffed.

    To me, it's pretty definitive without actual admission that they have ulterior motives

    I really hope AMD (or less likely CTS Labs) publish CTS Labs 'technical' papers once these are patched, I'm looking forward to having what maybe a good laugh.
