Meltdown Checker for Linux Users
#1
Hello GS Community,

You have probably heard about the Metldown and Spectre attacks that affect most CPU's out there, just found this tool in the wild, it checks if you are prone to the Meltdown attack.

In case you were infected, you should immediately upgrade your kernel version with a patched KAISER kernel.
Here is a repo of Debian-based Linux Kernel versions:

Much Regards
