What you need to do about newly discovered computer chip flaws

A new security threat has been revealed, putting virtually all devices at risk. Apparently, there are a set of security flaws on nearly all computers with chips from Intel, Advanced Micro Devices (AMC) and ARM.

Other devices concerned are smartphones, tablets and even internet servers.

To avoid hackers accessing sensitive information due to this security flaw, ensure all your devices have their operating system up to date.

Most systems should perform the update automatically, but do make sure this feature is active on your devices, or manually check for updates.
