Researchers Detail New CPU Side-Channel Attack Named SpectreRSB
Academics from the University of California, Riverside (UCR) have published details last week about a new Spectre-class attack that they call SpectreRSB. The difference from previous Spectre-like attacks is that SpectreRSB recovers data from the speculative execution process by attacking a different CPU component involved in this "speculation" routine, namely the Return Stack Buffer (RSB). In the grand architecture of a CPU, the RSB is a component that is involved in the speculative execution routine and works by predicting the return address of an operation the CPU is trying to compute in advance, part of its "speculation." In a research paper published last week, UCR researchers said the could pollute the RSB code to control the return address and poison a CPU's speculative execution routine. For example, in two attacks, they polluted the RSB to expose and recover data from other applications running on the same CPU, and in a third, they polluted the RSB "to cause a misspeculation that exposes data outside an SGX compartment." Researchers said they reported the issue to Intel, but also to AMD and ARM.
