The “Intel CPU” Exploit – does it affect App Inventor apps? #SPECTRE #MELTDOWN

Yes, but Android has already been updated to deal with it.

What is the “Intel CPU” Exploit? Well, its not just Intel, as first described. The SPECTRE exploit works on processors from many vendors. The MELTDOWN exploit might mostly impact Intel processor (but could affect some others).

What are these exploits and what do they do?

This first video is a high level overview. I hope to add another video going into more details – which means explaining a bit about what goes on inside your computer or smart phone processor and computing system.

There is a typo in a title in the slide set – about half way through the video the title says “What do this exploits actually do?” and of course, that should say, “”What do these exploits actually do?”

Ignore the type “doe” in the FB link below – that’s been fixed on the web site! But the typo in this tittle, in the middle of the video should say “What do THESE exploits actually do?
