AMD Processor Flaws
A number of vulnerabilities have been discovered in the AMD Ryzen and EPYC processor lines that include manufacturer backdoors in some chipsets and could allow attackers to gain direct access to the CPU. As a result, an attacker could inject persistent malware in the CPU as well as gain access to and steal network credentials.

Credential Security Support Provider protocol (CredSSP) is an authentication provider that processes authentication requests for other applications and is commonly used in RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) and WinRM (Windows Remote Management).
A remote code execution vulnerability exists in unpatched versions of CredSSP. An attacker who successfully exploits this vulnerability could relay user credentials to execute code on the target system. Any application that depends on CredSSP for authentication may be vulnerable to this type of attack. The vulnerability is a logical one and affects all Windows versions to date.
Exim is an email server agent used in Unix-like operating systems.
The Exim vulnerability reported in CVE-2018-6789 is an issue in the base64d() function in the SMTP listener in Exim. By sending a handcrafted message, a buffer overflow may happen. This can be used to execute code remotely.
See https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-6789 for more information.
