​’Rowhammer’ DRAM flaw could be widespread, says Google

“Google’s team of expert hackers at Project Zero have uncovered a serious security problem lurking in modern DRAM devices – and one that the hardware industry may have written off as a reliability issue. Project Zero has called on kit makers to provide more information about efforts to mitigate the so-called ‘rowhammer’ problem, which researchers at Carnegie Mellon and Intel drew attention to in a paper last year called “Flipping Bits in Memory Without Accessing Them: An Experimental Study of DRAM Disturbance Errors“.” [1]
