Spectre, Meltdown and Malware

He observes:

Researchers have discovered more than 130 malware samples designed to exploit the recently disclosed Spectre and Meltdown CPU vulnerabilities. While a majority of the samples appear to be in the testing phase, we could soon start seeing attacks.

Information from AV-Test regarding samples received from various sources (researchers, testers, security companies): the samples cover a range of platforms, not just Windows.
