Kali Linux 2018.2 is the second release in 2018 and the first to incorporate mitigation for the widely reported Meltdown and Spectre security vulnerabilities for the x86 architecture (amd64 and i386) through the implementation of the Linux 4.15 kernel, which, unfortunately, reached end of life last month. Apart from keeping your PC protected against Spectre and Meltdown, the Linux 4.15 kernel included in Kali Linux 2018.2 also improves support for AMD Radeon GPUs and implements support for AMD Secure Encrypted Virtualization, a new technology designed to dramatically limit the access to the virtual machine memory by encrypting it.
