On January 2, 2018, news outlets began reporting security flaws in certain Intel processor designs. A Google team reportedly uncovered two security flaws. The more serious (“Meltdown”) apparently affects only Intel chips. The other (“Spectre”) affects microprocessors from Intel, AMD and ARM. One researcher called Meltdown “probably one of the worst CPU bugs ever found.” Google reportedly conveyed its findings to Intel on June 1, 2017.
This news drove the price of Intel shares down over 5% during two trading days to close at $44.43 on January 4, 2018.
Shortly before the news broke, Intel’s CEO sold substantial amounts of his Intel shares, reaping millions of dollars.
“We’re focused on the extent of Intel’s undisclosed chip problems, when senior executives knew of the problems, potentially improper insider trading, and the damages inflicted on Intel investors,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
Whistleblowers: Persons with non-public information regarding Intel should consider their options to help in the investigation or take advantage of the SEC Whistleblower program. Under the new program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC.
