Austin Linux Meetup: Meltdown and Spectre

February 14, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Kernel and Hardware guru, Kim Phillips will show exactly how and why most modern CPUs have gaping security holes that defy any real fixes! To get the most out of this presentation, a little homework before the meeting will help as the issues are fiendishly complicated and subtle (which is why they got through years of the very cutting edge of Quality Control procedures devised by the human mind). Please do some research before the meeting to get the most out of the Q & A session. A few links (out of many):
