The Foreshadow Attack: From a Simple Oversight to a Technological Nightmare

Posted on in Presentations

2018 was the year speculative execution vulnerabilities caused havoc in the IT industry. This session will discuss the Foreshadow/L1TF vulnerability, how it got introduced, what its impact was and how it got mitigated. Unfortunately, Foreshadow/L1TF will most probably not be the last major speculative execution attack. We need to brace for the next big attack.
