Meltdown and Spectre Vulnerabilities

Graham Quince

Recommended Posts

You may have heard about the January 2018 security issues regarding Intel, AMD and Arm processors.   There is a concern that malicious programs, malware and websites could obtain information they should not be able to access.

In layman’s terms, a design flaw in the world’s most commonly used processors could allow unauthorised access to personal data. 

(If you are interested, this website goes into more technical detail: https://meltdownattack.com/ )


While neither of these bugs is Frog’s fault, we support your servers and as soon as security patches are released by the manufacturers, we will contact you to arrange to update your systems.  Any such update will likely require some downtime as the servers will need to be shut down and restarted.

We’ll update the Frog platforms we host (i.e. if your Frog web address ends in frogos.net).  We will coordinate with you to update your Frog servers.  

If you run Frog in a VM environment, you will have to update your VM software (HyperV, VMWare etc) as well as working with us to update Frog.
