Meltdown/Spectre, JavaScript, web browsers and Web Shield
« on: January 17, 2018, 03:41:00 PM »
With regard to Meltdown/Spectre and the now apparent role of JavaScript to execute Meltdown/Spectre exploits within web browsers, does Avast Web Shield, and especially the script scanning feature, have the capability of identifying and mitigating these exploits?
