Two new vulnerabilities that affect many modern microprocessors were published on January 3rd, 2018. The first vulnerability, called Meltdown, affects only Intel CPU’s and can be fixed with an operating system patch. The second, called Spectre, affects CPU’s from AMD and ARM. It requires a CPU design change and cannot be fixed in software.
Cradlepoint routers are not affected by either vulnerability.
Cradlepoint’s primary cloud provider has patched their servers to mitigate potential effects to NetCloud Manager (NCM) and NetCloud Perimeter (NCP).
