Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge getting this Intel security feature


Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, it looks like only Intel's latest Tiger Lake mobile chips will include this capability, and likely subsequent desktop and server chips which will release later, at least according to this article, even though Intel has been working on the feature since around 2016.  That means that even if all browsers support the new hardware based security feature, only a very small subset of systems utilizing Intel's latest and greatest CPUs will actually benefit from it.  Currently, the Exploit Protection in Malwarebytes Premium has all of its ROP gadget detection functions disabled, and enabling them has no effect, I believe due to a high rate of FPs (though that's just speculation on my part based on how other features in Exploit Protection were similarly disabled at one time), but if such attacks do become common, perhaps Malwarebytes will re-enable these functions, assuming they can do so without a high rate of FPs or compatibility issues.
