Surely you have learned from the press that areas of the CPU cache can be read out as of 1995 by a “malfunction” of all CPUS.
Virtually every system connected to the worldwide Internet needs to be updated and restarted. This applies to all providers and every computer (PC, laptop, server, possibly smartphone / tablet).

The CPU cache may contain data such as passwords or private keys. Therefore, the scope of these gaps is very wide and a timely action is required.
Currently there are no known exploits to exploit these gaps – which will change in the coming weeks.

In the next few days, several updates for operating systems (Linux, BSD, Windows, OSX) and browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Chromium) are expected.
For those interested in technology, detailed information can be found at:

We’ve already started updating and restarting the entire CRM infrastructure as needed. We will keep the unavailability / downtime as short as possible and currently assume a possible unavailability of up to 20 minutes to your CRM system.

Due to the number of systems we maintain, we think the update can take up to 2 weeks.
Currently, we can not rule out that further updates and reboots will be required in the coming weeks.
