RAMBleed DRAM

RAMBleed DRAM

On June 11th, security researchers published a paper titled “RAMBleed Reading Bits in Memory without Accessing Them”.  This paper describes vector  against Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) modules that are already susceptible toRowhammer-style attacks. Systems using DRAM modules mitigated against Rowhammer style attacks remain protected from RAMBleed.  This vector may affects hardware products, among which some used by OVH. …
