    Re: Vulnerabilities: Spectre and Meltdown

    Serious question- has there been any verified instances, out in the wild, of real attacks using these vulnerabilities?

    Not yet, its similar to the Intel Management Engine flaws from back in 2015 & 2017 they are quite complicated to pull off remotely.

    So it seems more and more unique samples are being submitted to AV test sites so the exploits for Spectre & Meltdown are making their way out in the wild.

    Just a little warning.

    For those on windows 10: Microsoft announces new updates to protect against Spectre and Meltdown attacks | ZDNet

    I'm guessing they'll be some more BIOS updates from motherboard makers too.

    "I'm guessing they'll be some more BIOS updates from motherboard makers too."

    That's good to know. More security then?

    Hopefully. I would assume after this the next gen chips/chipsets should be more secure.

    Alas the similar flaws found in AMD chips/chipsets have been verified.
