New Blacksmith Exploit Bypasses Current Rowhammer Attack Defenses

Cybersecurity researchers have demonstrated yet another variation of the Rowhammer attack affecting allDRAM(dynamic random-access memory) chips that bypasses currently deployed mitigations, thereby effectively compromising the security of the devices. The new technique dubbed “Blacksmith” (CVE-2021-42114, CVSS score: 9.0) is designed to trigger bit flips on target refresh rate-enabled DRAM
