Class Action Lawsuit Alleges Intel Sold Billions of Defective CPUs with Security Flaws, Performance Issues, and More

A proposed class action lawsuit alleges Intel Corporation has for years knowingly sold billions of central processing units (CPUs) plagued with a design defect that leaves the chips “egregiously” vulnerable to cyberattacks—and its only “fix” can slow computer performance by as much as 50%.

The 112-page lawsuit, filed in the Northern District of California on November 8, 2023, says the design flaws present in Intel’s 6th through 11th generation of CPUs—which drive “billions of computers throughout the world”—can be easily exploited to steal sensitive data stored in a computer system’s memory, such as passwords or encryption keys.
