Samsung ARTIK and Spectre

Based on reports of a kernel level potential vulnerability impacting a particular kind of ARM processor, Samsung is working closely with partners to review the situation. While Samsung ARTIK modules include ARM processors, only one, the 530, includes the potentially vulnerable processor. Samsung has developed a patch in Ubuntu that will mitigate any potential vulnerabilities that will be made available for download on or before February 28th of 2018. We recommend that all customers keep their devices updated with the latest version of software.
