Starbleed bug threatens FPGA chipsets used at data centers, IoT devices around the world

Researchers have uncovered a new security bug allowing attackers to extract data by tampering with the configuration files of small integrated circuit boards found in many desktops and high-performance servers. 

The new bug, dubbed ‘Starbleed’, allows physical and remote access attacks on chipsets manufactured by Xilinx, resulting in the extraction of data and tampering with the files to reprogram the chip with malicious code.
