After our analysis about the vulnerability disclosures this week on AnandTech, and continuing discussions on Twitter, TechTeamGB, a Great Britain based Youtube technology channel, invited Senior Editor Ian Cutress on the Thursday show to discuss the recent news surrounding the AMDFlaws website, the ramifications of the announcement, the company behind the announcement, and what it means to the community at large.

Through the 96 minute discussion, Ian vocalised a lot of what has been covered on AnandTech already, and discussed some of the more esoteric claims in the wild that may or may not have elements of truth in them. This show was broadcast before posting our interesting call with CTS-Labs, the company behind the vulnerability disclosure, but has a number of snippets that are mirrored in that article.

A small Q&A from the TechTeamGB audience happens at the end of the show. The show is hosted by TechTeamGB Host, Andrew McDonald.

    You need to look at Windows Defender Application Guard:

    It spins up/spins down hyper-v session and places Edge browsing into a virtual environment that gets destroyed when the page is closed. This will defend against attacks from all of these recent vulnerabilities.

    Wow, it's uncomfortable watching the TechTeamGB kid. They should really study how broadcast TV news edits interviews, where you only cut to the interviewer when he has a question. Then, he just needs to practice his poise, when the camera is on him. Again, just watching newscasters for a bit would go a long way.

    Of course, there are other interesting things they could show, such as a timeline or a bullet point summary of what Ian is saying. But that obviously takes work. Just a simple editing job should be a quick thing to do.

    Ian, Can you or your other reviewers please look into issues with AMD Ryzen RAID utilizing an PCIE NVME SSD as your boot and 2x SSD drives on SATA in a RAID 0 config for storage and try and transfer DATA between the two. There seems to be major issues with AMD chipset drivers and their RAID drivers in this configuration and stability of the drivers. I cannot even upgrade the drivers on my ASRock AB350 chipset itx motherboard and the RAID driver can only be installed at Windows 10 Installation and then get random blue screens and cannot upgrade the driver. We need to have this issue fixed and you bringing it to light will hopefully get them moving on this issue!? Thanks Ian!
