Learning Goal: I’m working on a data analytics question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.OverviewOne of the biggest concerns, when a vulnerability is discovered, is how to inform the public. Companies often subscribe to Security RSS feeds, so they are made aware of vulnerabilities quickly. One of the most critical vulnerabilities found today that affect both websites and browsers is the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerability. InstructionsGo to Basic Search: Strayer University Online Library to complete the following:Research the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerability and summarize your findings. Describe the total global impact of this vulnerability.
Locate Linus Torvalds’s comments on Meltdown and Spectre vulnerability. After you have reviewed Torvalds’s comments, do you agree or disagree? Justify your rationale with other research on the topic.
Are there tools available to verify if a computer is susceptible to this vulnerability? Share any additional useful links or tools you find with your classmates.Note: This course requires the use of Strayer Writing Standards. For assistance and information, please refer to the Strayer Writing Standards link in the left-hand menu of your course.” Post from Corey that you have to reply Hello Professor. Hello Class. Meltdown is a hardware vulnerability affecting Intel x86 microprocessors, IBM POWER processors, and some ARM-based microprocessors. It allows a rogue process to read all memory, even when it is not authorized to do so. Meltdown affects a wide range of systems.Spectre and Meltdown are uniquely dangerous security vulnerabilities that allow malicious actors to bypass system security protections present in nearly every recent device with a CPU-not just PCs, servers, and smartphones, but also Internet of Things (IoT) devices like routers and smart TVs. These hardware vulnerabilities allow programs to steal data which is currently processed on the computer. While programs are typically not permitted to read data from other programs, a malicious program can exploit Meltdown and Spectre to get hold of secrets stored in the memory of other running programs. This might include your passwords stored in a password manager or browser, your personal photos, emails, instant messages an even business-critical documents. Meltdown and Spectre work on personal computers, mobile devices, and in the cloud. Depending on the cloud provider’s infrastructure, it might be possible to steal data from other customers.When the whole Windows 11 thing was going on I looked up the TLS platform. I also thought of overclocking one of my servers and I found out that Intels software I foget the actual name of the platform but this is what it does. Or to say Meltdown is hardware malware but it is based or piggy backing on what Intel and AMD already have installed on the hardware and chip. But yes everything that has a ip address now has a chip and now it is everything that we use so the treat is major. The global impact is major. It seems the point of all of these things is to spy. So in that regard it cannot be that huge of an impact because we have been spied on for years and years. Our information taken. They do literally insane things. They do things that do not make sense,” Torvalds wrote.- Do I agree? What is Intels purpose? If this is so terrible like he is saying why doesnt the chip maker or Government see it the same way? Seems as though its a plan and its supposed to happen. Also sounds quantum Are there tools available to verify if a computer is susceptible to this vulnerability? From my understanding no. We found out about this in the HP machines at one of my jobs in 2016. It was a Government agency and they did nothing.
