Recently we reported about two, possible new, James Bond themed, vulnerabilities in Intel processors that were reportedly based on the infamous Spectre and Meltdown leaks. The websites that announced the so-called Skyfall and Solace vulnerabilities, have now been updated. They reveal the announcements were part of a ‘social experiment’.


I hoped, that Spectre was a social experiment itself.
