Kaiser KPTI Intel CPU Fix?

2821513Jan 3 2018 — edited Jan 11 2018

I've come across the notice about the KPTI vulnerability with Intel CPUs... Was wondering whether Oracle is actively working on this for Solaris 10 x86, Exadata and/or Linux offerings.  Details here:  https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2018/01/03/fckwit-aka-kaiser-aka-kpti-intel-cpu-flaw-needs-low-level-os-patches/

This seems nasty, and with the other providers already releasing patches, it would be a good idea to see where Oracle is in regards to this - MOS doesn't appear to have any information on it.
