At the beginning of 2018 vulnerabilities of microprocessors and the attack on third-party channels became a source of global threat of cyber security, it is told in the report of Group-IB. "If last year the main attention of security specialists has been connected with epidemics of WannaCry, NotPetya, BadRabbit, then the beginning of 2018 has shown that the new source of global threat of information security is side-channel of the attack and vulnerability of microprocessors of different vendors" — it is said in the report of the company. The company specifies that it is impossible to close these types of vulnerability quickly and effectively by means of program updates. At the same time today in the market there are no decisions which can effectively reveal threats therefore they becomes known thanks to leaks, but not a research of the attacks. "The attack side-channel combination with hardware vulnerability which allows to perform a set of operations in an operating system opens new opportunities to infect devices imperceptibly. If the device is compromised thus, then reinstallation of an operating system or even emission of the hard drive won't solve a problem" — the representative of the company Dmitry Volkov has reported.
