Terminal Blues .... when a Systemic Vulnerability Provides Systems Wide Flash Crash Opportunities

Free from and secure against attack and alteration is a dangerous belief to espouse and rely on for safety for it's always based upon a false premise such as is .... “in order to exploit any of these vulnerabilities, an attacker must be able to run crafted code on an affected device … There is no vector to exploit them.”

And as for the above muse on Meltdown/Spectre attack vectors, it is wise to consider, in order to exploit any of these vulnerabilities, an attacker must be able to run crafted code with an effective device in a conflicted sector … and in those will there be multiple vectors to exploit.
