Intel CPU Vulnerability

Looking at this article:

Has there been any discussion with how Freebsd will handle this and how much of a performance hit PFSense will experience because of it?

I manage a couple of Not-for-profits, and wanted to allow the new Arm architecture some more time to mature before steering them in that direction.

That article was really badly titled.

That's good, since the newer ARM CPUs have the same sort of speculative execution problems as intel CPUs...
