Doc Text:
A flaw was found in hw. The Intra-mode BTI refers to a variant of Branch Target Injection aka SpectreV2 (BTI) where an indirect branch speculates to an aliased predictor entry for a different indirect branch in the same predictor mode, and a disclosure gadget at the predicted target transiently executes. These predictor entries may contain targets corresponding to the targets of an indirect near jump, indirect near call, and near return instructions, even if these branches were only transiently executed. The managed runtimes provide an attacker with the means to create the aliasing required for intra-mode BTI attacks.

Description Petr Matousek 2022-03-08 12:06:40 UTC
Intra-mode BTI refers to a variant of BTI (Branch Target Injection aka SpectreV2) where an indirect branch speculates to an aliased predictor entry for a different indirect branch in the same predictor mode , and a disclosure gadget at the predicted target will transiently execute. Such predictor entries may contain targets corresponding to the targets of indirect near jump, indirect near call and/or near return instructions, even if these branches were only transiently executed. Managed runtimes can provide an attacker with the means to create the aliasing required for intra-mode BTI attacks.
