This story comes in the wake of the recent revelations that virtually every Intel and AMD CPU in use has a design flaw that makes all of your security and antivirus protection meaningless.

With hundreds of millions, perhaps billions, of computers controlling pretty much every essential service and function of modern life it’s somewhat sobering to hear the manufacturers admit:

“Oops! We made a teeny little mistake and all of your CPUs are vulnerable to being hacked. You need to replace all of them.”

Hard to even get your thoughts wrapped completely around the scale of it.
