That doesn't say much, except to confirm
that patches are risky. AMD themselves have explained
that they're not vulnerable to meltdown. There's
also this, from a trusted source that Windows
users may be familiar with:
So people can test for themselves. Since you don't
bother to find the facts and don't understand them,
anyway, you'd save everyone a lot of confusion if
you'd just wait for Timmy Cook's "gift patch" for
your Mac and let Windows/Linux users, who actually
might have AMD CPUs, worry about their computers.
This isn't a joke for your usual wiseacreing. People are
having their computers fried with funky patches, despite
very low risk in terms of security.
