BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces an investigation on behalf of Intel Corporation (“Intel” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: INTC) investors concerning the Company and its officers’ possible violations of federal securities laws.
On January 2, 2018, news media reported that a significant design flaw in Intel's processor chips could allow malicious software to read protected areas of a device's kernel memory, causing Intel’s processor chips to be “vulnerable to hackers” and “raises concerns about the company’s main products and brand.” The Register reported that the operating system updates necessary to address the vulnerability would likely result in “a ballpark figure of five to 30 percent slow down, depending on the task and the processor model,” for Intel-based computing devices.
On this news, shares of Intel fell $1.85, or 3.94%, to close at $45.00 on January 3, 2018, thereby injuring investors.
