Intel CEO Brian Krzanich used the opening of his Consumer Electronics Show keynote in Las Vegas on Jan. 8 to publicly comment on the recently disclosed Meltdown and Spectre security vulnerabilities that impact the majority of the world's CPUs.
Jan. 9 was originally intended to be the day that the Meltdown and Spectre CPU flaws were to be publicly disclosed, but media speculation led to a Jan. 3 disclosure of the critical flaws.
"The collaboration among so many companies to address this industrywide issue across several different processor architectures has been truly remarkable," Krzanich said during his keynote. "Security is job No. 1 for Intel and our industry, so the primary focus of our decisions and our discussions have been to keep our customers' data safe."
