Spectre and Meltdown are vulnerabilities in the Intel processor chip that is installed in most computers, smartphones, and other computing devices. As of January 8, 2018 we have not seen any successful attacks. Nevertheless, it is important to protect your data and computers. The primary protection against this particular attack is patching/updating your devices, but check with your LSP first, and review these best practices <https://security.virginia.edu/tips-and-tools>.
