Way back, Intel made a design mistake in its 64-bit chips design. Two critical vulnerabilities found in Intel chips can let any attacker steal data from the memory of running apps, such as data from password managers, browsers and emails. The vulnerability affects operating systems and devices running on Intel processors developed in the past decade, including Windows, Macs, and Linux systems. All operating systems making use of Intel architecture have to be redesign and Linux is off course no exception. “There is no one quantity. It is going to rely on your and in your load. I believe 5 % for a load with a noticeable kernel part is more or less in the correct ballpark. However in the event you do micro-benchmarks that actually attempt to rigidity it, chances are you’ll see double digit efficiency degradation.” said Linux’s creator Linus Torvalds
