I have a pretty good damn idea how spectre works. The original researches deserved to be commended. I won't give away too many details, but I'm pretty certain this exploit was applied years ago. I'm shocked that CPU architectures didn't protect against it as they would be subject to the similar attack vector.

Good point why cpu is not protected against it !!!
It is interested how the hardware can be fixed against this type of attack ????

Wouldn't it be easiest to detect at the network equipment? Sure the OS doesn't know that data is being sent out the network adapter, but the routers and firewalls still must route the traffic.
