At the start of 2018 the technology industry was hit by two new threats unlike anything it had seen before. Spectre and Meltdown used vulnerabilities not in operating system code or poorly written applications, but ones at a much lower level than that. This vulnerability was not only something of concern to today’s technology providers, but also to those looking at architecting the way technology will work in the future. As we try to push technology further and have it deal with more data, more quickly than ever before. The technology industry is having to look at ways of keeping up and have our tech work in different ways beyond the limits of our current ways of working. One of these developments is storage class memory, or persistent memory, were our data can be housed and accessed at speeds many times greater than they are today. However, this move brings new vulnerabilities in the way we operate, vulnerabilities like those exposed by Spectre and Meltdown and how did they look to exploit operational level…
