Beware of Meltdown and Spectre

Over the course of the last couple of weeks, the tech world has learned that a large portion of the world’s computer processors are vulnerable to a catastrophic flaw in an entire generation of computer chips. With hard facts finally coming to light, reports have emerged on how far reaching these vulnerabilities – dubbed Meltdown and Spectre – are. Both of which, have the potential to leak passwords and all other sensitive data on a computer, mobile device, or cloud server.

Is Your Business at Risk?

Yes. These vulnerabilities affect laptops, desktop computers, smartphones, tablets and internet servers that merchants use to conduct business according to Reuters.com. Any merchant business across the globe that has a modern device is susceptible to the security flaws that could let hackers steal sensitive information. What makes it even more alarming, is that the vulnerabilities do not discriminate and can also affect personal devices and steal data from other customers who share a cloud server with you.
