CVE-2017-5754 - "Meltdown"

This vulnerability requires "local user access" to execute code.  Ecessa devices do not allow the execution of arbitrary code in the user accessible interfaces so it is not possible for this vulnerability to be exploited.

Description of vulnerability:

Systems with microprocessors utilizing speculative execution and indirect branch prediction may allow unauthorized disclosure of information to an attacker with local user access via a side-channel analysis of the data cache.
