You’ve no doubt heard in the news about the Meltdown and Spectre security vulnerabilities. While they are not to be taken lightly, once all is said and done we don’t believe there is a lot to worry about. The bad news is that every CPU chip designed since 1995 has these vulnerable design flaws due to the inclusion of speculative processing (which means things go faster because it guesses what you want to do next with pretty good accuracy). The good news is that creating something to exploit these vulnerabilities is incredibly difficult because they operate at the lowest of levels, making it unlikely you will ever encounter anything that takes advantage of them.
If you are on our SafeGuard Maintenance plan we will be automatically taken care of these things for you. As always, if you have any questions or concerns please call us at 763-331-6227 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
