Security Notification and Mitigation Strategies for Meltdown and Spectre

Meltdown and Spectre refer to three different vulnerabilities found in computer chips for both desktop and handheld devices. These vulnerabilities effect the way processors use speculative computation to complete tasks, and may give malware a way to access critical data within the system. Operating systems have already begun releasing patches, and no known exploits have been noted in the wild, but it’s still a good idea to be aware of the situation and make certain that all updates to operating systems and software have been installed.

For more information on how these vulnerabilities may affect industrial control systems, please refer to the following notification from Schneider Electric:
