    The webkit team give some very detailed info on exactly how an attack might have been performed within their browser, and their stop-gap remediation (lowering javascript timer precision to 1ms), while they work to better secure things.…

    A note on performance:
    I did a before/after on a computationally intensive 3d render. My performance was actually very slightly better post-update. (WIn10 i7 6700k)

    As I understand it, it's the Disk IO related tasks that are most serverely really hurt (3d render is basically all CPU), so I can see how servers would suffer for this. I don't notice a difference.

    • MSI (my native MoBo) did a great firmware patch that actually made my system preform better as well.plash
