@r3pek i can't believe a 30+ year old platform that has hardly attempted to modernize or remove any backwards compatibility has had this many security flaws.
@r3pek so far my favourite bit:

Mitigations for previous CPU-based side-channel attacks are used in this one.
We are really and truly fscked (in general, not just by this particular side-channel).
@rysiek I'm really beginning to think that x86 is dead and we actually need a brand new cpu architecture or just ditch it all together for ARM.
