Intel worried about GPU viruses

Posted on Thursday, October 08 2009 @ 17:34:27 CEST by

Intel is carefully studying all the possibilities to ensure security with Larrabee, as the chip giant is worried that hackers may be able to create the first GPU viruses. X-bit Labs reports sooner or later hackers will find ways to executive malicious programs on GPUs:
“Without any doubts, as graphics processors get more complex, the question of security will become more and more significant and, perhaps, we will witness the first viruses for the GPU. This is why we are carefully studying all the possibilities to ensure [appropriate] security with Larrabee, both on API and on driver levels,” said Philipp Gerasimov, a software development relations specialist at Intel, during a public discussion of Larrabee at Russian-language Habrahabr web-site.
