Meltdown Write-up (Old News)

This is a write up I did, after reading the white paper and investigating the workings of speculative execution. I was genuinely interested in how it all played out and how this seems like the year for exploits and vulns.

I’m legitimately wondering if this ever did get weaponized yet. I’ve often thought about trying to implement it with BEeF as a post module of sorts as a JavaScript payload.

Also take note, that I really didn’t have the energy to try to read through Spectre even though its probably the worst one.
