Meltdown And Spectre Cpu Vulnerabilities

Recommended Posts

Do the newly reported Meltdown and Spectre CPU problems impact TCH server performance or vulnerability? Have they needed to be patched? I see that some cloud servers using Linux are reporting problems with the patches slowing things down. (Not that I have noticed any problem).

This is more of a question for the techs, so please open a ticket with the help desk, as they don´t frequent the forum as we mods do.

However, I can see the interest / need to know this so I will see if they plan to make an public announement about it.

I hate to over simplify things, but in this case it seems appropriate due to the scope. When you combine the hardware affected by Meltdown And Spectre together, everyone is affected in some manner, which includes us.

 

Regarding our shared/reseller hosting servers, we begin patching these servers as soon a Centos released the updates. We have yet to see any decrease in performance and are still testing and monitoring.
