Intel Processor Security Flaw Class Action


CONSUMER LAW GROUP has launched a class action lawsuit against Intel of Canada, Ltd., Intel International, and Intel Corporation (together "Intel") relating to security flaws of their Central Processing Units ("CPUs") with x86-64 architecture.

The Intel Processors in the lawsuit include, but are not limited to: Intel Celeron, Intel Pentium, Intel Core i3, Intel Core i5, Intel Core i7, Intel Core i9, Intel Xeon, Intel Xeon Phi, Intel Atom, and Intel Itanium processors. Intel Processors can be found in desktop, laptop, and cloud-based computers, as well as in servers, tablets and smartphones.

All electronic devices which contain Intel Processors since at least 2004 may be affected by the security flaw.

The class action alleges that Intel Processors contain security flaws that may be exploited by hackers to access Class Members’ personal and/or private information, such as passwords, usernames, security keys, credentials, cryptographic keys, social security/insurance numbers, personal photos, credit card and banking information, emails and other data (the “Design Defect”), thereby making their electronic devices susceptible to attacks called "Meltdown" and "Spectre".

It is further alleged in the lawsuit that Intel has effectively known about the Design Defect since at least June 1, 2017 and should have known even earlier than that, yet they intentionally made the business decision to not disclose its existence to consumers.

Intel has not offered to compensate consumers to remedy their damages, instead Class Members are asked to download a “patch”, which will dramatically degrade the CPUs’ performance and slow their electronic devices down by between 5% to 30%.

If you or someone you know is an owner or lessee of an electronic device that contains an Intel Processor with x86-64 architecture anywhere in Canada, Ontario, or Quebec and you wish more information on potential compensation or to be kept advised of the status of the Intel Processor Security Flaw Class Action litigation or any resulting compensation from this lawsuit, please provide your contact information to our law firm using the form below.
