Android Studio device emulator now works with AMD processors and Hyper-V

Monday, July 9th, 2018

Android Studio's device emulator used to be incredibly slow, even on capable hardware. Google has drastically improved the performance over the past two years, but a few issues remain. The Windows version of the Android Emulator uses HAXM, which only works on Intel processors. That means AMD-powered computers can only use non-accelerated ARM images.

At long last, this is finally changing. Google released a new version of the Android Emulator today that adds support for VT-x hardware acceleration on AMD processors, using Microsoft Hyper-V.

Latest Spectre variant affects x86 and ARM CPUs

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

Spectre and Meltdown are still fresh in our mind, but already researchers from Microsoft and Google have found a new vulnerability, named Speculative Store Bypass (SSB), that could allow for malicious software to indirectly read from memory. Some Intel and AMD processors are vulnerable, but of greater Android-related concern is the susceptibility of 5 ARM reference designs going back to 2011's Cortex-A15 and including the latest A75.

How it works

The particulars of the exploit were first revealed this Monday, the 21st, and they were classified as Spectre and Meltdown Side-Channel vulnerability variants 3a and 4.

‘Spectre’ and ‘Meltdown’ CPU vulnerabilities become public, most Google products already protected

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

A report from The Register yesterday claimed that Windows and Linux developers were scrambling to fix a "fundamental design flaw in Intel's processor chips." The flaw theoretically allows any program to view the layout or contents of protected kernel memory areas, which often contain passwords, login keys, cached files, and other sensitive data. Even a web app could potentially read kernel-protected data.

After this report (and a tweet with sample code) was published, Google's Project Zero security team came forward with more details.
