Intel has revealed today that the company is facing at least 32 lawsuits over the Meltdown and Spectre CPU flaws. "As of February 15, 2018, 30 customer class action lawsuits and two securities class action lawsuits have been filed," says Intel in an SEC filing today. The customer class action lawsuits are "seeking monetary damages and equitable relief," while the securities lawsuits "allege that Intel and certain officers violated securities laws by making statements about Intel's products and internal controls that were revealed to be false or misleading by the disclosure of the security vulnerabilities."
Intel is also facing action from three shareholders who have each filed shareholder derivative actions that allege certain board members and officers at Intel have failed "to take action in relation to alleged insider trading." These filings appear to be related to the concerns that have been raised over Intel CEO Brian Krzanich's stock sales.
