Researchers claim to have found 13 vulnerabilities in AMD Ryzen

Researchers from Israel-based CTS-Labs claim they have found 13 critical security vulnerabilities in AMD's Ryzen and EPYC processors. This is a relatively new company and the way they reported their findings is raising some skepticism. While companies are typically given 90 days' notice, CTS-Labs decided to give AMD less than 24 hours to respond before publishing the report. Full details at CNET, but until further confirmation we recommend taking the severity of this news with a grain of salt.
These new security vulnerabilities break down into four categories, according to CTS-Labs co-founder and Chief Financial Officer Yaron Luk-Zilberman. All essentially allow an attacker to target the secure segment of a processor, which is crucial to protecting the sensitive information on your device.

"You're virtually undetectable when you're sitting in the secure processor," Luk-Zilberman said. "An attacker could sit there for years without ever being detected."
