**IMPORTANT** – Intel just notified VMware of faulty microcode updates for certain Haswell/Broadwell CPUs.
Please see https://t.co/Wgl5Sjghto for affected systems & “tmp” workaround for those who’ve applied microcode update until new updates are available from Intel

F*ck, I can barely believe that I was able to read non-cached data from other process efficiently. Removed iteration and issued flush on secret. Thanks @misc0110, @aionescu for all the tips. Not releasing it or somebody could definitely set the world on fire with this! #meltdown pic.twitter.com/eHYaxnbEAo
