Congress has some questions about Meltdown and Spectre, and they are calling out those involved. Members of the Committee on Energy and Commerce have drafted letters to the heads of several companies involved in the security flaw. The companies whose CEO's received letters are; Apple, Amazon, AMD, ARM, Google, Intel, and Microsoft There are some serious questions in these letter, and I am very much looking forward to hearing the response that these companies have to them. The first question in particular "Why was an information embargo related to the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities imposed?" is particularly good. Big thanks to thesmokingman for the story. As more products and services become connected, no one company, or even one sector working in isolation can provide sufficient protection for their products and users. Today, effective responses require extensive collaboration not only between individual companies, but also across sectors traditionally siloed from one another. This reality raises serious questions about not just the embargo imposed on information regarding the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, but on embargos regarding cybersecurity vulnerabilities in general.
