Intel continues to pick up the pieces after announcing last week its flagship processing chip has a couple big security flaws. Archie Agarwal, CEO of ThreatModeler, joins Cheddar to discuss how the security patch may work and if Intel can turn this debacle around.
Agarwal says we'll have to wait and see if the patches work, but he advises that airlines and hospitals have the most to lose. Fixing this flaw will be expensive for companies and a massive undertaking.
In terms of how this vulnerability will impact Intel, the company insists it won't impact its financials. Agarwal says the cost to Intel could be billions and that the company may need to redo its entire technology structure. It's also got to deal with the many class action lawsuits that have been filed against the chip company.
