Deepin Linux Users Receive Security Updates to Patch Meltdown and Spectre Exploits

Earlier this month, the world was made aware of the grave reality of what would appear to be the worst chip flaws in the history of computing. Two security vulnerabilities dubbed Meltdown and Spectre were unearthed, affecting billions of devices using modern processors from Intel, AMD or ARM. The industry worked together in the past several months on long-term solutions to mitigate these exploits by releasing patches for their software products, CPU firmware updates, as well as new operating system kernels. We’re not done yet with these security flaws, as Spectre is harder to fix than Meltdown.
