    I wonder how long it will be before we see a hardware fix for this. It sounds like almost every PC and mobile device will be affected by this. I hope we don't see it exploited in the real world, or we're in trouble!

    Apple has said that this flaw affects all of it's machines.

    Received the Microsoft patch yesterday.

    I do think that this type of flaw could have not been predicted years ago.

    Hackers are now as accomplished as the makers are.

    Personally it's going to be one of the most serious problems to all computers
    including servers.
