Security Advisory: Meltdown and Spectre Vulnerabilities

In light of the recent CPU vulnerabilities that affect multiple CPU vendors, we wanted to give you an update on our internal response.

Expel has assessed the risk introduced by the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities and we’ve already begun patching our production infrastructure as well as all internal IT systems. While we’ve not seen any evidence of exploitation of these vulnerabilities in the wild, we believe it’s prudent to expedite this patching process.

We expect to have all systems patched by the end of the day on Monday, January 8. We’ll provide additional updates (here) to confirm that our patching process has been completed.


Monday, January 8 — Operational system is patched (backend and assemblers).
