Nearly a dozen cybersecurity researchers this week reported two potentially serious exploits of vulnerabilities that exist in most modern processors. Three teams — Jann Horn at Google Project Zero; a team at Cyberus Technology; and a team at Graz University of Technology — independently discovered and reported the Meltdown exploit. Two teams independently discovered and reported the Spectre exploit. The Meltdown and Spectre exploits leave no traces in traditional log files, but they could used to capture sensitive information on devices.
