Summary
Moritz Lipp explains how the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities exploit hardware optimizations to read otherwise inaccessible data processed on the computer. He explains the background to understand the underlying issue and the uncomfortable security consequences they bring, and why it is no coincidence that four teams of researchers discovered the same vulnerabilities in the same time frame.
