Intel's Defective Processors Pose Security Threat For Millions of Computers: Class Action Lawsuit
A class action lawsuit was filed on behalf of all individuals who purchased electronic devices containing defective Intel computer processor chips.
By: Imbesi Law PC
The complaint alleges that from approximately 1995 to the present, Intel has manufactured and distributed defective computer processor chips containing security flaws. Hackers can exploit these flaws to read personal and sensitive information stored on an individual's electronic device, including
passwords, cryptographic keys, personal photos, credit card information, emails and other data. The defective processors likely affect millions of electronic devices. Though consumers may download operating system patches to protect themselves against these flaws, such patches may reduce their devices' performance speed by as much as 50%.
The class action lawsuit seeks to recover damages on behalf of all individuals who purchased a defective computer processor chip or an electronic device containing a defective computer processor chip from 2012 to the present.
