Intel's chief executive has insisted software fixes to address the recently discovered Meltdown and Spectre bugs in microchips would be released in the next few days, BBC reports.
Speaking at the CES trade show event in Las Vegas, Brian Krzanich said 90% of processors and products from the past five years would be patched "within a week".
Intel has faced scrutiny after details of flaws emerged last week.
Meltdown and Spectre are unusual in that they are both problems with a fundamental component inside modern computers - the central processing unit (CPU).
They allow attackers to potentially access sensiteive data in the chip's memory that would otherwise be off limits.
Speaking at the trade show, Krzanich referred to the design issues discovered by researchers on some Intel, ARM and AMD chips.
Not just an Intel problem
However, he did not apologise on his firm's behalf for what he described as an industry-wide problem.
"Before we start I want to take a moment to thank the industry for coming together," he told attendees.
"Security is job number one for Intel and our industry, so the primary focus of our decisions and discussions have been to keep our customer's data safe."
He added that there had to date been no confirmed cases in which customer data had been accessed via exploits designed to take advantage of the flaws.
And he reiterated advice that users should apply security updates as soon as possible to protect themselves from malicious hackers.
Intel’s share price has remained stable despite the negative publicity.
