Intel fixes CPU security flaw it said was patched in May .
It turns out that Intel's CPU security fixes from May didn't address everything the company mentioned. Intel is rolling out another patch that does more to close the speculative execution flaws that could let attackers swipe passwords and other sensitive info. The mitigations in the patch should "substantively reduce" the possibility of an attack, Intel said. This still doesn't fully resolve the problem, but Intel is promising future CPU-level microcode fixes. There's a larger concern over how Intel has handled these vulnerabilities in the first place, however.
