In response to reports that Microsoft’s meltdown patch has opened a new set of vulnerabilities, a cybersec expert with Juniper Networks offers perspective. Mounir Hahad, Head of Juniper Threat Labs at Juniper Networks commented below.
Mounir Hahad, Head of Juniper Threat Labs at Juniper Networks:
“The rush to quickly close vulnerabilities is often a treacherous path that can cause undesirable side-effects. The urgency is to respond to known issues in a timely manner. It is not unheard of that some new glitches are introduced with fixes. The good news in this case is that Microsoft has quickly fixed this issue and that any system up-to-date with March patches is no longer vulnerable.”
