KPTI Issue / Meltdown exploit and how KPTI mitigates it
Hi Stephan , I have read in google recently about the KPTI ( kernel Page table isolation ) , it is a recent issue , Have you heard about it ? Do you know if the system using Dell Computers o Hp Computers since 7 to 10 years ago could be affected or it is for recent installations?
if older machines could be affected , Is there any patch or kb to fix this issue ?
Meltdown exploit and how KPTI mitigates it
Thanks for your support
The Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilites are a much bigger of an issue than Heartbleed and other recent threaths since they exploit on memory mapping level, below the operating system. Not only Microsoft Windows is affected.
Microsoft and other vendors have just started to roll out patches. The final solution is probably not known right now. More will follow.
These patches will be tested and resluts will be published on ABB Library and other places. Stay tuned!
