Do the CPU bugs Meltdown and Spectre affect eValid operation

Postby CShelyne » Thu Jan 11, 2018 2:13 pm

Afternoon.

What about the "Meltdown" and "Spectre" CPU vulnerabilities talked about on the internet?

Do they affect eValid operation?

Thanks

Thanks for asking CShelyne.

You have likely seen in the news two security vulnerabilities that have come to be known as "Meltdown" and "Spectre".

Meltdown and Spectre are both hardware bugs that allow normally secret information to be read by any software that's asking for it.

"Meltdown" breaks isolation between programs and the underlying operating system, while "Spectre" breaks the isolation between running programs.

Our ISP has scheduled a maintenance window for Saturday, January 13th, from 3:00 AM EST to Saturday, January 13th 08:00 AM EST.

They will patch our server software to overcome these vulnerabilities.

The long and the short of it is, you don't have to worry except if the machine you're using has not had the patch made to it.
