"Microarchitectural Incontinence" by Daniel Gruss: the Meltdown (and that doesn't mean Chernobyl)

I'll put this on movies and call it "MicroArchitetural Incontinence" (and "Leakage"), by Daniel Gruss, a professor (31) at Graz University in Austria.  That is, an Intel chip is now like an old man's prostate gland, or bowel.

He hacked his own computer to show the Meltdown vulnerability. Not to mention that he would probably play well as a movie star.  It's at least a half-century before he has to deal with his own nomenclature. Maybe we could see him on AOPS.
