There’s been a lot in the news over the past couple of days about the Spectre and Meltdown bugs, which apparently affect the majority of mobiles and computers - apparently making it possible to exploit vulnerabilities in the chips to access data stored in memory by other programmes: https://spectreattack.com/
Apple have confirmed that the issue affects all iOS devices and Macs - with the exception of Apple Watches. They’ve indicated a fix has already been deployed (though I haven’t yet seen one).
Google have confirmed that it affects Android devices. It will likely take some time for all the manufacturers of Android devices to create updates for their own versions of Android
Apparently, the bugs are not yet known to have been exploited. Any thoughts on how this will impact the use of the Monzo app - and other banking apps - and what information will be given to customers?
