"Unhackable" CPU?

Researchers at the University of Michigan claim they have a processor that can't be hacked.

 

The description is a bit thin, but it seems a variation on memory shuffling to avoid direct attacks on specific locations.

 

I very much doubt that it is hack proof.  (I'd go for "denial of service" first off ...)

Re: "Unhackable" CPU?

Unhackable? Not a chance. 

 

If it's unplugged and never used, then I will concede it's unhackable. 

 

The term "unhackable" is two frequently banded around by those looking to further sales or uptake of services they offer. Yet-to-be-hacked, now that's a term I'm happy with. 

 

Unhackable technology is up there with the discovery and keeping of unicorns or, simply put, non-existent.

How about "yet-to-be-hacked--that-you-know-of"?

Re: "Unhackable" CPU?

Well, yes. I'd accept any variation on the phrase provided it doesn't state complete fabrications.
