Xbox One X: Spectre What? Meltdown Who?

By  | 

Anyone following the happenings in the tech world must have heard about the massive security issues plaguing computer chips and they are identified as Spectre and Meltdown.

Both Spectre and Meltdown are bugs that prey on security vulnerabilities in computers hence they affect practically every computer and device in the world. Such bugs are made to dig out deep information stored in the computer before leaving them exposed.

But if you’re on the Xbox One X or the One S, you don’t have to worry much about it as your credit card details and other personal details are still safe from harm.

Microsoft has confirmed on this earlier today when that the Xbox One X and S are two consoles that run on the same operating system and this particular program is immune to Spectra.

But make no mistake about it. The Xbox One X still relies on a Jaguar chip and this is something that is extremely vulnerable to attacks. It’s a good thing that the operating system has prevention measures to stop these bugs.
