Three months ago, the industry was on high alert due to the publication of two new security exploits: Meltdown and Spectre see my prior post on this topic.
Since then, Authentic8 has aggressively updated its software at both the system and application level, from kernel to browser (and every patch in between). We have been actively monitoring our systems for security issues, as we always have and will continue to do.
These attacks did not represent a qualitative change in the security landscape but were a reminder that threats are always present. Some are known; most are probably not.
The Meltdown and Spectre threat reminds us that monitoring and rapid response are vital to our security and, by extension, the security of our customers.
While we haven’t seen any in-the-wild exploits that take advantage of Meltdown and Spectre, security breaches attributed to the lack of basic IT hygiene continue unabated.
We encourage you to re-assess - continuously - your basic security
