"(...) Today Intel and a coordinated supergroup of microarchitecture
security researchers are together announcing a new, serious form of
hackable vulnerability in Intel's chips. It's four distinct attacks,
in fact, though all of them use a similar technique, and all are
capable of siphoning a stream of potentially sensitive data from a
computer's CPU to an attacker.
The researchers hail from the Austrian university TU Graz, Vrije
Universiteit Amsterdam, the University of Michigan, the University of
Adelaide, KU Leuven in Belgium, Worcester Polytechnic Institute,
Saarland University in Germany and security firms Cyberus,
BitDefender, Qihoo360 and Oracle. The groups have named variants of
the exploit techniques ZombieLoad, Fallout, and RIDL, or 'Rogue
In-Flight Data Load.' Intel itself has more tamely labelled the new
set of attacks 'Microarchitectural Data Sampling,' or MDS.(...)
AMD and ARM chips don't appear to be vulnerable to the attacks, and
Intel says that some models of chip it's released in the last month
include a fix for the problem. Otherwise, all of Intel's chips that
the researchers tested, going back as early as 2008, were affected.
You can test if your system is affected with a tool the researchers
published here)*.(...)"

There is a Windows and Linux build of the MDS tool.
