Intel Postpones Patching 'Spectre NG' CPU Flaws


Last week, the German computer magazine revealed that Intel’s chips are vulnerable to eight more Spectre flaws, which were called “Spectre Next-Generation” or Spectre NG. According to Heise, Intel had planned to release the patches yesterday, May 7, but Intel asked the researchers who uncovered the bugs for an extension.

According to Heise, Intel had problems getting the patches ready in time, so it asked the researchers to not disclose the first wave of Spectre NG bugs to the public for another 14 days. This first wave will include patches for four “medium-risk” flaws, and a disclosure of another two “high-risk” bugs. Heise sources said that Intel has already requested another extension, until July 10.
