- Impact: Kernel
- Mitigation: microcode update + kernel update making possible to protect various CPU internal buffers from unprivilaged speculative access to data
- Performance impact of the mitigation: TBC
- Note: These 4 CVEs are similar and collectively named "MDS" vulnerabilities, the mitigation is identical same for all
