Chrome 67: New security feature called Site Isolation

Post by Rudi »

    
Maybe something worth noting (or being aware of)...

See: Google Chrome Will Start Using 10% More RAM Now, Thanks to Spectre

If your absence does not affect them, your presence didn't matter.

And it is already a memory hog...
But protection against Spectre is good, of course.
Best wishes,

Except I thought there were no known exploits of Spectre out there 'in the wild'..?

Surely there would be reports of such exploits?

Or is that if you were hacked like this, you'd have to keep it under wraps because if you didn't, your business would go down the tubes because no one wants to work with someone who got hacked? What about the millions (billions?) of individual PC users, wouldn't they be chattering about the problem.

Or is that that this weakness is so clever that you can never know if you've been stung by it or not?
