Are thin clients affected by Spectre and Meltdown?

Side-channel attacks The two vulnerabilities exploit the possibility of a side-channel attack of the processor. A side-channel attack is any attack based on information acquired from the physical implementation of an information system. Timing information, energy consumption, electromagnetic losses or even sound can be exploited to break the system. By using statistical analysis of these physical operations, it is possible to obtain data from protected memory (for example passwords and cryptographic keys).  It is not a simple attack to perform, and cannot be enabled remotely because the malicious code must be executed locally on the machine. It is still unclear whether it is really possible to corrupt or modify data.… Read More »

Are VDI environments vulnerable to Meltdown and Spectre?

Are VDI Environments Affected by Meltdown and Spectre? VDI environments can be affected when taking into consideration the hardware platform used to connect to the backend VDI environment, the hypervisor, as well as the guest operating system presented via the hypervisor. As an example, many VDI environments are running Microsoft Windows virtual machines for which Microsoft has released patches to change how user and kernel mode code is allowed to interact. However, there are facets of VDI architecture that help mitigate the effects of Meltdown and Spectre attack surfaces. Let’s take a look at what those are. VDI Environments Help Mitigate Meltdown and Spectre Attack Surfaces When it comes to… Read More »
