1. Everything About Meltdown
According to researchers who discovered the bug, every Intel processor since 1995 has been affected by this.
Having said that, systems running ARM and AMD processors aren’t off the hook just yet, and early signs do not look promising at all.
According to Symantec, Meltdown exploiting cloud services is potentially the most worrying factor.
Apparently, this could let attackers buy space on a vulnerable cloud service and use it to stage an attack against other customers using the same host, leading to serious consequences for both the parties involved.
