Meltdown and Spectre Expose Fundamental Need for Proactive Security Strategy
Last week, a critical flaw in how our devices operate was exposed to the public. These weaknesses, now known as “Meltdown” and “Spectre” have revealed a loophole in the security structure of our devices; including computers, personal laptops and mobile devices alike. What’s even more frightening than that, however, is the fact that these structural flaws had previously gone undiscovered for two whole decades without being resolved. If flaws as critical as these can go unnoticed for so long, it’s only a matter of time before more insecurities are discovered and exploited.
