Israel-based cybersecurity firm CTS Labs said it found 13 critical security vulnerabilities and manufacturer backdoors in AMD's EPYC, Ryzen, Ryzen Pro and Ryzen Mobile lines of processors. The flaws could put organizations at increased risk of cyber-attacks, the report said https://safefirmware.com/amdflaws_whitepaper.pdf.
