Researchers at the Eindhoven University of Technology recently revealed information around Thunderspy, an attack that relies on leveraging direct memory access (DMA) functionality to compromise devices.

Topics: Microsoft

An attacker with physical access to a system can use Thunderspy to read and copy data even from systems that have encryption with password protection enabled.

"Secured-core PCs provide customers with Windows 10 systems that come configured from OEMs with a set of hardware, firmware, and OS features enabled by default, mitigating Thunderspy and any similar attacks that rely on malicious DMA," Microsoft says.
