Hosting infrastructure coverage confirmation on security and protection, against Meltdown and Spectre. The CPU flaw from CPU vulnerability.

On Wednesday 3rd January 2018, researchers revealed serious flaws in modern processors that could affect practically every Intel computer released in the last two decades, and the AMD and Arm chips in desktops, laptops, tablets and phones - this is fairly big news! Thought out Wednesday, it wasn't all bad news. The good news did come through that IntelAMD and Arm stated that they can fix the vulnerabilities with software patches. Not to forget a sprinkle of denial from manufactures, about whether or not this vulnerability actually effected their hardware - but who cares, we have a fix.

Why does this effect you?

Not only does this likely effect some of the hardware (which is possibly in your pocket), but this may also effected mine and your website hosting infrastructure based within a UK Microsoft Azure datacenter. Microsoft provided us with an update on our underlaying hardware at around midnight last night, highlighting that a majority of the Azure infrastructure had already been updated to address this vulnerability. As an extra precaution, I will also be running unscheduled system updates/patches throughout the day to further protect the hosting infrastructure.
