Meltdown And Spectre

Synopsis: This week on the podcast, we summarize what you need to know about the hardware-based “Meltdown” and “Spectre” vulnerabilities affecting every modern processor, and thusly how your computer is likely affected and what is being done about it. In the episode, we brought up the likelihood of a class action lawsuit against Intel, and sure enough after we recorded, ArsTechnica reported that three complaints have already been filed.
