Bad news: Another data-leaking CPU flaw. Good news: It's utterly impractical

J. Cook Silver badge

It has the potential to expose encryption keys and other reasonably short identifiers if an attacker has persistent access to the victim's hardware

If they've managed to get to the hardware, why not just ask the hardware directly for the data instead of setting up this drip feed method?

Utterly impractical, and I can't believe I've just wasted five minutes typing out this rebuttal.
