What Consumers Need to Know About Intel's Chip Flaw

January 8, 2018

Intel facing scrutiny after two major security flaws were exposed last week in its computer chips. The technology giant is issuing patches in a series of software updates. Washington Post Technology Reporter Brian Fung explains what consumers need to be aware of.

"It's a pretty big deal," says Fung. "This was a flaw not found for roughly two decades. This essentially goes to the heart of every computer that is in existence today."

Right after Intel disclosed old chips have vulnerabilities, the company introduced a new chip with AMD. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich will be delivering the keynote speech at 2018 CES in Las Vegas, NV Monday night.
