CacheOut = latest Intel processor execution speculative attack.

Apparently.

But imo unclear if this is worth running a patch for my home laptop...

" Another month , another Intel CPU hardware vulnerability.:nutkick: "

" This will effect any Intel CPU Skylake/Cascade Lake onward. Broadwell and earlier are safe. "

But...

" Seems like this issue should be negated by turning off TSX, which is barely used even in servers much less on desktop. "

And...

" An attack to exploit this vulnerability can not be rendered remotely, IE through a network share or web browser... You'll need to execute local priviledged code for this one. "
