Spectre and Meltdown

Posted on in Podcasts

It’s never good news when potential security exploits are detected. But when they affect all personal computers, mobile devices and cloud infrastructure dating back to 1995, it creates a problem of a whole new magnitude. In this episode, we’ll be talking with Paul Kocher, the researcher credited with co-discovering Spectre and a co-author of the Meltdown research paper.

Some of the topics that we cover include:

  • How did these vulnerabilities happen, and why were they not detected sooner?
  • Did the rush to bring technology to market play a role in allowing these exploits to slip through the cracks?
  • What are the main concerns to look out forboth as an individual and as a CISO?
