Spectre and latest linux updates


Recommended Posts

So apparently even though I am running an AMD cpu I am still susceptible to at least 1 variant of the well publicized Spectre security flaw.

For Ubuntu (I'm running Ubuntu Mate 17.10 artful) I see Jan 9 as a release date for the update


Anyone know it there will be a performance hit with this update on AMD processors?
