Specter & Meltdown

More info on the two processor vulnerabilities affecting Intel and other makers is saying that there are currently no exploits out there in the malware world right now but maybe soon. This means that if you can’t find a fix for the Specter or Meltdown vulnerabilities for your organization’s computers, you don’t have to panic you have a bit of time.

Both of the vulnerabilities are present in Intel and other chips and have been there since 1995. However, it would be wrong to consider either a bug or a design flaw, because they used the features behind the vulnerabilities to enhance performance by trying to predict what you are going to do next.

So What Can You Do

There is not much you can do at the moment but you can download and install all the software updates that are being pushed out now. So make sure you have auto updates set to on and have the latest updates installed.
