Since their public reveal, there has been some confusion between the two vulnerabilities and what the differences are. While the two bugs are reportedly similar, it has been made clear that these are two separate vulnerabilities with different requirements for mitigation.
It seems strange to reveal two critical industry-wide vulnerabilities simultaneously. Are vulnerabilities like these usually unveiled in pairs? Wouldn't it make more sense to unveil the vulnerabilities separately to prevent confusion?
Why were Meltdown and Spectre disclosed at the same time? Why not treat them as two distinct issues?
