Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome, both chromium-based browsers, are set to receive and update, Intel CET, which will prevent a diverse range of vulnerabilities.
Intel first introduced its Control-flow Enforcement Technology (CET) back in 2016. In 2020, Intel introduced the same feature to its Intel’s 11th generation CPU.
The CET feature is developed for protecting software programs from Return Oriented Programming (ROP) and Jump Oriented Programming (JOP) attacks that alter an application’s normal flow. This modification results in successfully executing the malicious code that is placed by cyber attackers.
