Hey guys, check out this vulnerability advisory that was just released recently.

"CPU hardware implementations are vulnerable to side-channel attacks referred to as Meltdown and Spectre (also KAISER and KPTI). These attacks are described in detail by Google Project Zero and the Institute of Applied Information Processing and Communications (IAIK) at Graz University of Technology (TU Graz)."

An attacker is able to execute code with user privileges can achieve various impacts, such as reading otherwise protected kernel memory and bypassing KASLR.

The only solution is to replace CPU hardware

The underlying vulnerability is primarily caused by CPU architecture design choices. Fully removing the vulnerability requires replacing vulnerable CPU hardware.
