SpatialOS, Meltdown and Spectre


Please find below our response to the recent press relating to Meltdown and Spectre.


We contacted Google, who provide compute for game developers using the SpatialOS SDK, to confirm whether Improbable were required to action any patches. They confirmed that they themselves had applied the patch to their hypervisor, and since SpatialOS customers have the whole VM (ie, it is not shared), SpatialOS deployments do not need to restart and Improbable does not need to apply a patch to any internal container technology or kernels.
