apple proces procesoare intel

Apple a fost tinta catorva procese in ultima luna, fie ca vorbim despre cele privind limitarea performantelor iPhone, fie ca vorbim despre problema procesoarelor Intel. Compania americana nu pare sa aiba prea mult succes in a scapa de plangerile clientilor, iar acum are un nou proces colectiv care are la baza probleme generate de catre Intel.

In cererea de chemare in judecata, petentii sustin ca Apple este vinovata de crearea unor procesoare care le permit hackerilor sa fure informatiile stocate in produsele folosite de clienti. Aici vorbim atat despre procesoare Intel, cat si despre cele ARM, ambele fiind afectate de catre vulnerabilitatile Meltdown si Spectre, dar problema nu sta la cei de la Apple.

Atat procesoarele Intel din Mac-uri, cat si cele ARM din iDevice-uri, au arhitectura dezvoltata de catre companii separate, Apple doar implementandu-le in propriile produse. Chiar si in cazul ARM, unde Apple modifica procesoarele, arhitectura de baza, care contine si vulnerabilitatile, a fost dezvoltata de catre compania ARM, deci ea ar trebui trasa la raspundere.

Procesul nu are specificat si cuantumul daunelor pe care petentii le cer, suma urmand a fi stabilita in urma finalizarii procesului, deci ramane ca un juriu sa o stabileasca in final. Compania Apple are sanse mici sa piarda acest proces din moment ce vorbim despre probleme care nu tin de ea, ci de alti producatori, asa ca va fi interesant de vazut ce se va intampla in final.

“The Plaintiffs stated in their filing that “all Apple Processors are defective because they were designed by Defendant Apple in a way that allows hackers and malicious programs potential access to highly secure information stored on iDevices. The Apple Processors expose users to at least two types of security risks (the “Security Vulnerabilities”), based on two hacking techniques, which have been dubbed ‘Meltdown’ and ‘Spectre’ by the technology community. The first hacking technique is known as ‘Meltdown’ because it ‘melts security boundaries which are normally enforced by the hardware,’ and the other hacking technique is known as ‘Spectre’ because its root cause is speculative execution, and “because it is not easy to fix, it will haunt us for quite some time.””
