Apple M1 chip contains hardware vulnerability that bypasses memory defense


ARM or Apple?

Is it an Apple issue or an ARM issue? Are there lots of ARM implementations out there based on ARM8.3 that have this pointer authentication issue or is it just the M1? BTW it sounds as if you are worse off with no pointer authentication than with pointer authentication that takes minutes to crack. I'm not an expert in such matters - just interested to know the answers.
