While we give Josh Walrath a lot of flack over his failed JoshTekk project, the reality is that Josh is an incredibly smart guy when it comes to technology and what is happening deep down inside today's CPU and GPUs. He has published an editorial on PCPer this morning that takes a look at what some are seeing as an attack on AMD yesterday, by CTS-Labs. Our thoughts are that the entire scenario reeks of being a hit-job of one sort or another. Josh puts aside the tinfoil hat and discusses the true implications of the possible security vulnerabilities. CTS-Labs was formed in 2017 in Israel. Very little was known about this group before today. When they announced the news they already had a website (AMDFlaws.com) along with several videos and presentations pertaining to these AMD vulnerabilities. Possibly unrelated to the group we saw Viceroy Research, a South African firm that has a history of releasing bad news about companies while shorting their stocks, quickly put up their “AMD Obituary” page that claims they expect AMD’s share price to drop to $0 and they will be forced to go into bankruptcy proceedings. Now, we do not know if these two entities are connected, but Viceroy put up their findings very quickly if not at the same time as CTS-Labs released their findings.
