A Gather Data Sampling (GDS) transient execution side-channel vulnerability was found affecting certain Intel processors. This issue may allow a local attacker using gather instruction (load from memory) to infer stale data from previously used vector registers on the same physical core.

Description Rohit Keshri 2023-07-19 11:35:32 UTC
Gather Date Sampling (GDS) is a transient execution side channel vulnerability affecting certain Intel processor. In this flaw, a local attack using gather instruction (load from memory) may infer stale data from previously used vector registers on the same physical core.

Comment 2 Rohit Keshri 2023-07-19 12:44:16 UTC
Intel Processors supporting Trust Domain Extension (Intel TDX) are not affected by GDS.

Comment 3 Rohit Keshri 2023-07-19 12:56:01 UTC
* Gather feature is provided by Intel AVX2 and Intel AVX-512 (Intel Advanced extensions)
* It comprises of single-instruction, multiple data instruction, which fetch non-contiguous data element from memory using vector-index memory addressing.
* The scope of of stale data exposure is limited to dame physical processor core.
* Attacker cannot directly control or specify the source of the stale data, it is small and uncontrolled set of data.
* Since it is an uncontrolled set of stale data, data correlation and speculation could be difficult.
