Intel says it's been hit with 32 separate lawsuits over Spectre, Meltdown
Friday, 16 February 2018 Intel customers and shareholders are angry about Meltdown and Spectre—angry enough that a total of 32 suits have been filed against the company regarding the two vulnerabilities.
In its annual report, filed Friday, Intel disclosed that 30 customer class-action suits have been filed against the company, plus two additional class-action suits by shareholders. Those suits have been filed both within the United States and abroad. Given a host of uncertainties—how the cases are proceeding, whether damages have been claimed, and the uncertainty of whether the suits will succeed—Intel said it was not estimating potential losses as a result of the litigation.
