CVE-2017-5754 spectre meltdown

AJJan 5 2018 — edited Jan 17 2018

Hi,

Has someone got around to patch their Linux systems with this patch and would share some experience?

The whole world is talking about it now, so I'm a bit puzzled that Oracle hasn't released any information at all about this (or maybe my search skills are too bad).

According to this article there is expected to have negative impact on performance (https://access.redhat.com/articles/3307751 ) but I guess the security risks would outweigh the possible performance degration ..

Anyway, if someone has some insight please share.

Thanks.

AJ
