AMD issues statement about CPU vulnerabilities

As we wrote earlier today, a relatively unknown firm claims to have discovered 13 vulnerabilities in AMD's Ryzen and EPYC processors. There were some unusual aspects about this release, including the fact that CTS Labs gave AMD less than 24 hours to respond to the discovery. Usually, a company is given 90-day notice, so it's definitely strange that CTS Labs decided to push out its report as soon as possible.

Here's AMD's response to the news:
"We have just received a report from a company called CTS Labs claiming there are potential security vulnerabilities related to certain of our processors. We are actively investigating and analyzing its findings. This company was previously unknown to AMD and we find it unusual for a security firm to publish its research to the press without providing a reasonable amount of time for the company to investigate and address its findings. At AMD, security is a top priority and we are continually working to ensure the safety of our users as potential new risks arise."
