New Noise-Resilient Attack On Intel and AMD CPUs Makes Flush-based Attacks Effective


Modern Intel and AMD processors are susceptible to a new form of side-channel attack that makes flush-based cache attacks resilient to system noise, newly published research shared with The Hacker News has revealed.

The findings are from a paper “DABANGG: Time for Fearless Flush based Cache Attacks” published by a pair of researchers,¬†Biswabandan Panda and Anish Saxena, from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur earlier this week.
