A security researcher has created a tool to allow the extraction and analysis of AMD’s Platform Security Processor firmware.

A new set of CPU vulnerabilities could be inbound, with up to eight different attacks said to target Intel CPUs — but we’d recommend adopting a wait-and-see approach.

AMD has now responded to CTS Labs’ initial findings, kicking the legs out from one of the company’s defenses for its own actions in the process.

CTS Labs CTO has written a letter addressing and defending his company’s disclosure of various vulnerabilities in AMD’s Ryzen CPU and chipsets, but his explanation raises more questions than it answers.

AMD may have a serious security problem on its hands, but the disclosure of these issues was problematic, to say the least.
