Since the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities knocked the glow off of the new year, 2018 has been the year of the CPU bug. Security researchers have been working in overdrive examining processors for design flaws, firmware bugs, and other vulnerabilities that put an entire computing architecture at risk.

They haven't come up empty-handed.

Here's what we've had to contend with this year on the CPU vulnerability front — and what we can expect in a couple of weeks when new research hits the stage at Black Hat.
