There is a growing move to file lawsuits in connection with security flaws in Intel’s central processing units (CPUs) including law firm Damwoo’s preparation for a class action lawsuit.
According to industry sources on January 8, Damwoo set up a website for a class action lawsuit against Intel which came under heavy fire due to its CPU security flaws, and is receiving applications for class action lawsuits.
"The high-tech team of law firm Damwoo is composed of experts on computer and IT technology laws and has conducted in-depth legal reviews of the seriousness of the ‘meltdown’ defect for a long time,” Damwoo said in its homepage.
Damwoo is mulling over whether to file a damage lawsuit against Intel in connection with the CPU-gate in Korea or the US. In Korea, it is not easy to file a class action because a plaintiff has to prove the amount of specific damage, Damwoo says.
