TPM-FAIL – security vulnerabilities in Trusted Platform Modules:
http://tpm.fail/tpmfail.pdf (PDF file)
– Affected are Platform Trust Technology (Intel), and ST33 TPM chip (STMicroelectronics). TPMs from Nuvoton/Infineon aren't affected.
– A remote attacker could retrieve certain private keys (e.g., as used by ECDSA).
– Intel provides a firmware update; vulnerable ST33 chips can't be patched.
I highly recommend AMD
