TRRespass wins the Best Paper Award at IEEE SSP!

Our recent paper “TRRespass: Exploiting the Many Sides of Target Row Refresh”, in collaboration with the Systems and Network Security Group at VU Amsterdam has been awarded the Best Paper Award at the 41st IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy!

Congratulations to the authors: Pietro Frigo, Emanuele Vannacci, Hasan Hassan, Victor van der Veen, Onur Mutlu, Cristiano Giuffrida, Herbert Bos, and Kaveh Razavi

Rowhammer, the DRAM vulnerability that was supposedly fixed in DDR4 is not fixed in DDR4. The TRRespass attack shows that DIMMs from all 3 major vendors (good for 95% of the market) are still vulnerable.

Best Paper Award at DSN 2019!

Congratulations to Minesh Patel, Jeremie Kim, Hasan Hassan, and Onur Mutlu for the Best Paper Award at this year’s IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN)!

The DSN Best Paper Award recognises the best accepted scientific paper among all papers from the conference.  DSN is the top conference in fault tolerant and dependable computing, so this is a great achievement, congratulations!

The Talk video and slides for our award paper “Understanding and Modeling On-Die Error Correction in Modern DRAM: An Experimental Study Using Real Devices” are now available:
