TR has fallen victim to Intel's CPU Bug!

Fri Jan 12, 2018 3:46 pm

Oh sure, some people thought Intel's side-channel weaknesses were no big deal.

But who knew they could lead to a vicious and unprovoked side-panel attack!

EXHIBIT A!

Bah. Old news. I am disappoint.

We already knew there'd be no way of predicting in what ways these attacks would evolve. Indeed it now seems that no side-panel is safe.
Do not meddle in the affairs of archers, for they are subtle and you won't hear them coming.

The mobile version of the site doesn't have any side panels to attack, but I found another manifestation of this vulnerability: no top posts!
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.

Speaking of the mobile site, on Firefox beta for Android, clicking 'view full site' isn't working...
