Zombieload, along with other types of microarchitecture data sampling (MDS) such as Spectre and Meltdown, have the ability to exploit Intel processors and access sensitive data such as personally identifiable information (PII) from various operating systems including Microsoft, Apple, and Unix.

To address these security flaws, it will require a collaborative effort between Intel and major vendors to implement appropriate software patches.

According to Intel, 8th/9th generation Intel Core processors and the 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processor family have not been affected by these vulnerabilities.
