Branch Prediction is exploitable. One of the reason Apple and Intel have CPUs that outperform their competition is by their investments into branch prediction tricks. This means all iOS devices and Mac devices can be exploited.

Knowing Apple, they may do something retarded like have Tim Cook post a "Problems with Javascript" memo, and only allow CPU access for verified apps, or some crazy shit like that.

This is big crazy news.

CPUS are only vulnerable if they can be programmed.

So, stop programming them.
