Qualcomm to Fix Chip Security Holes

Qualcomm on Friday said it is working on updates for products that are affected by recently announced chip-level security vulnerabilities. The vulnerabilities, first disclosed last week by security researchers from Google and other organizations, have already wiped billions in value from Intel, whose chips are among those affected. They have also forced many software and cloud services companies, including Amazon, Apple, IBM and Microsoft, to deploy fixes, CNBC reported. “We are actively incorporating and deploying mitigations against the vulnerabilities for our impacted products, and we continue to work to strengthen them as possible,” a spokesperson told CNBC in an email. “We are in the process of deploying these mitigations to our customers and encourage people to update their devices when patches become available.” Researchers have found that one of the vulnerabilities affect processors from AMD, as well as chips that use certain ARM technology. Qualcomm chips do use ARM technology, and so the disclosure from Qualcomm should not be a major surprise. Still, Qualcomm stock fell about 1% point in after-hours trading on Friday after the company made the disclosure.
