Meltdown and Spectre Vulnerabilities

ACCi is aware of new publicly disclosed vulnerabilities dubbed “Meltdown” and “Spectre” that are making national news. Meltdown and Spectre are two techniques researchers have discovered that circumvent protections, exposing nearly any data the computer processes, such as passwords, proprietary information, or encrypted communications.

Operating system vendors have been working diligently to release patches to mitigate these vulnerabilities and ACCi will be applying these patches to our client’s systems as they become available and after they have been tested by our network operations center for compatibility.  If downtime or after hours work is needed, we will contact each of our ACCi clients for approval before proceeding.
