Intel has admitted that a recent patch rolled out to address massive CPU security flaws is causing reboot problems for some of its customers.
The patch is causing systems to reboot more often than normal, specifically for users running its older Broadwell and Haswell CPUs for both client and datacentre.
The Wall Street Journal even reported that the firm is advising some of its customers to hold off installing patches for the processor security flaw, which was revealed at the beginning of the month.
General manager of Intel's datacentre group Navin Shenoy said in a statement: "We are working quickly with these customers to understand, diagnose and address this reboot issue. If this requires a revised firmware update from Intel, we will distribute that update through the normal channels. We are also working directly with datacentre customers to discuss the issue."
"End users should continue to apply updates recommended by their system and operating system providers."
News first emerged that Intel's processors contained security flaws, later named Meltdown and Spectre, affecting almost every modern computer.
The security fixes are likely to cause significant slowdowns and a decrease in system performance, according to Microsoft. Other vendors, including Cisco, have also been scrambling to patch the issue.
