Meltdown attack explained for developers
« on: January 12, 2018, 05:11:34 PM »
I read the Meltdown paper so you don't have to

Meltdown is a cache-timing attack on Intel CPUs that allows all memory to be read by any process because of how they do Speculative Execution. If that sounds like a handful, we wrote this blog for you!

This post includes everything you must know before you can understand Meltdown as a developer (we assume no knowledge of CPU internals).
