Just seems like nothing but FUD, designed to try and push people away from AMD.

Definitely something fishy going on, especially with the timing.

I have found one crucial security issue myself! If you are using Ryzen CPU, all a potential hacker has to do is gain access to your computer and acquire your administrator credentials. With those they can do virtually anything to your system! Shame on you AMD!

Sounds very dodgy too me, just watched gamers nexus output on this subject, there were hints at the end of playing against the odds with AMD share price. Smells like someone is loosing money as AMD share price is doing well

I'm telling you, one of those dudes on the video was reading a script. I am 100% certain of that. One would think that a supposed genius such as him would be able to remember what he is talking about.

If financial gain through stock-market manipulation was indeed CTS-Labs' goal, it appears to have backfired: AMD's share price is up 1.04 on the news, and a further 0.77 percent in after-hours trading

The general consensus across the IT community including security is that this is a malicious claim aimed at damaging AMD.

I have a huge security vulnerability on my own system that if someone was to break into my house and knew my details they would be able to log onto my PC then they would be able to damage and or steal my data.

I'm not an AMD user but am impressed with the chipmaker. So as an Intel user I am appalled by this highly suspect paper. Something is seriously off here! I also wanted to post the video that Rob linked; it's a good deduction! I hope no one refrains from buying AMD over this - because they shouldn't.

Breaking:

If you allow someone into your home and furnish them with your bank details and passwords and then go shopping...it's possible for them, using an AMD CPU to steal money from you.

Why has AMD done nothing about this?

By stratagem thou shalt do war

Even a genius with an IQ of 200+ can have anxiety, nerves or issues in front of a camera. Nothing wrong with reading from a script providing info is accurate and true/evident.
