Intel's Massive Security Hole Reveals How Companies Address Vulnerabilities

When a group of researchers at the Graz University of Technology in Graz, Austria tried to hack their own system in a security simulation, they made an astonishing discovery.

Soon after the discovery, the research team submitted a bug report to Intel about both vulnerabilities—and helped kick-start a global conversation around how organizations should launch projects to address cybersecurity vulnerabilities.
