Now research out of Frances Ecole Superiore d'Informatique, Electronique, Automatique (ESIEA) moves a step closer to that goal: identifying a method for isolating the processor used by anonymous systems for the purpose of subverting that hardware.
A post on the blog of MIT's Technology Review, notes this recent paper by Anthony Desnos, Robert Erra and Eric Filiol of ESIEA. The research tackles a foundational problem for anyone looking to target attacks at processors: figuring out which processor a particular system is using.
