Hackers breached 3 US antivirus companies, researchers reveal
https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2019/05/hackers-breached-3-us-antivirus-companies-researchers-reveal/
I hate vague reports.  (Gossip.)
More details here: https://www.advanced-intel.com/blog/top-tier-russian-hacking-collective-claims-breaches-of-three-major-anti-virus-companies
Same information just posted on a different platform. Still no particulars. 3 Major American AV companies doesn't really give any specifics.
Fxmsp Chat Logs Reveal the Hacked Antivirus Vendors, AVs Respond
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/fxmsp-chat-logs-reveal-the-hacked-antivirus-vendors-avs-respond/
Thanks for the link. The opriginal post stated that it effected 3 US security Companies.
Now the statement is 3 companies with offices in the US. Big difference since many Security companies have offices in the US.

RIDL and Fallout: MDS attacks
Attacks on the newly-disclosed "MDS" hardware vulnerabilities in Intel CPUs

https://mdsattacks.com/

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/mds.html

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/corporate-information/SA00233-microcode-update-guidance_05132019.pdf

https://zombieloadattack.com/#attack
So according to the tool offered here, https://mdsattacks.com/ my system is vulnerable.

So the next logical question is how dangerous is this for the average user and,
probably more important, when will there be an actual fix outside of purchasing AMD ???

Since it's their chip, income and reputation, I'll be just a bit sceptical with anything they have to say till verifies by a third independent source.
