SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Intel has revealed another hardware security flaw that could affects millions of machines around the world.

The chipmaker said Tuesday there's no evidence of anyone exploiting the bug.

The bug is embedded in the architecture of computer hardware. Intel says it could let attackers see leaked data but it's difficult to exploit outside of a laboratory.

The company says it's already addressed the problem in its newest chips after working for months with business partners and independent researchers.

It's the latest revelation of a hard-to-fix vulnerability affecting processors that undergird smartphones and personal computers. Two bugs nicknamed Spectre and Meltdown set a panic in the tech industry last year.
