A shell script to tell if your system is vulnerable against the several "speculative execution" CVEs that were made public in 2018.
- CVE-2017-5753 aka Spectre Variant 1
- CVE-2017-5715 aka Spectre Variant 2
- CVE-2017-5754 aka Meltdown or Variant 3

## Understanding what this script does and doesn't
This tool does its best to determine whether your system is immune (or has proper mitigations in place) for the collectively named "speculative execution" vulnerabilities. It doesn't attempt to run any kind of exploit, and can't guarantee that your system is secure, but rather helps you verifying whether your system has the known correct mitigations in place.
