New Vulnerability In CPU Hardware

There is a new vulnerability that is based on a CPU's architecture. The major problem is that there is no way to patch Hardware, therefore it will need to be mitigated by patching the Operating System. There will be a multitude of patches rolling out for all Operating Systems, I.e. Windows, OSX, Linux, and even Android, over the coming days and weeks. These Patches need to be applied as soon as possible after release as exploits are already in the Wild and are as easy as a javascript that is run in your browser. The Vulnerabilities are being called Meltdown and Spectre.
