Just saw this over on Ars.

 

https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2018/03/a-raft-of-flaws-in-amd-chips-make-bad-hacks-much-much-worse/

 

TLDR: If a malicious person gets admin access on your AMD machine they can:

 

Run software in the AMD Secure Processor

 

Bypass security protections

 

Steal credentials

 

Brick hardware, they can kill the CPU remotely

 

BE AWARE AND STAY SAFE.
