Apple M1 chip contains hardware vulnerability that bypasses memory defense
Apple M1 chip entertains accelerated hardware facilities and abilities that bypass defense memory thus speeding up speculative execution of novel processed data ..... virgin info .... disruptive intel is another interpretation and short summary of the paper titled "PACMAN: Attacking Arm Pointer Authentication with Speculative Execution," by Joseph Ravichandran, Weon Taek Na, Jay Lang, and Mengjia Yan and one which realises the supposed virtual vulnerability is in fact a live practical feature for further beta testing development and in-house future trialling and trailing.
In such a case one can safely assume M2 will be similarly blessed and equipped.
* Then of course would the discourse dispute the shade of grey to be decided on there ..... light steel or dark battleship.
The bottom line is .... It is what it is and what great or pathetic use you make of it.
