Flipping Bits in Memory Without Accessing Them

Very interesting paper from the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department of the Carnegie Mellong University about a hardware-level DRAM vulnerability. The paper introduces itself as follows: "[...] As DRAM process technology scales down to smaller dimensions, iut becomes more difficult to prevent DRAM cells from electrically interacting with each other. [...] By reading from the same address in DRAM, we show that it is possible to corrupt data in nearby addresses".
