    It seems Meltdown affects only Intel chips. Spectre affects a wider range including AMD and some ARM chips.

    I think I'm correct in recalling that aside from the Pixi (A6), all the other webOS devices use A7 chips so that once again, it's old enough to not be affected...

    So, a pixi plus off wifi, on data only, would be immune to Krack, Meltdown, and Spectre? If so, I'm taking my SIM card out of my Blackberry and putting it back into my pixi.

    Well, I'm speculating about the CPUs, but no one's contradicted me yet. Krack needs to be patched - if someone is willing and able (Krack hack fix for webOS? - webOS Nation forums), but if you switch off wifi, I guess you're OK.

    ARM chips seems to have limited exposure (newer ones only?) so your BB might be OK depending on what CPU is in it...

    I'm just kinda "meh" about it
