    ^^That is a weird site, thing is screaming fake to me, looks like something somebody threw together in two mins, very weird.

    And to save anybody clicking on it this is all that is on the page.....

    Skyfall and Solace

    More vulnerabilities in modern computers.
    Following the recent release of the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, CVE-2017-5175, CVE-2017-5753 and CVE-2017-5754, there has been considerable speculation as to whether all the issues described can be fully mitigated.

    Skyfall and Solace are two speculative attacks based on the work highlighted by Meltdown and Spectre.

    Full details are still under embargo and will be published soon when chip manufacturers and Operating System vendors have prepared patches.

    Watch this space...

    That is it, nothing more....:confused:

    Probably hoax by over-enthusiastic Bond fan (Spectre, Skyfall, (Quantum of) Solace). Wait for Pussy Galore threat soon.

    Don't see a point in patching just yet, need all the performance I can on my aging setup, my system is only for gaming and nothing else.

    Thanks for posting mate.

    Yet all I hear is "we've known for half a year and didn't care to produce proper fixes", since if they did something in that half year, they might have known that there's a ton of bugs with their updates, be it AMD systems (I now think m$ screwed that one up too), as well as Intel systems.
