This week a web vulnerability was discovered that impacts virtually every processor manufactured since 1995. The vulnerability is being referred to as “Meltdown” and “Spectre”. Of course, we want you to know that we’ve got you covered. Most of our servers run a variant of the RedHat Linux operating system which released patches for the vulnerability around midnight January 5th, 2018.
