At the end of January 2020, another speculative execution vulnerability was found in Intel processors. Any modern Intel CPU built before October 2018 is likely vulnerable to a discovered hardware issue that could allow attackers to leak sensitive data from the OS kernel, co-resident virtual machines, and even from Intel's secured SGX enclave.
Data breaches happen all the time for all sorts of reasons. The ones that make the news have three things in common:
