      From what I can tell the VPRO and AMI interfaces are accessible from the internet. From other posts there have been "issues" reported previously!

       

      So how can a user be certain that the cloud server they get from a Digital Ocean, RackSpace or similiar vendor can not be breached?

      I was told by Digital Ocean that their KVM technology takes care of the Meltdown and Spectre problems but then I read that VPRO technology includes KVM interfaces. This is very troubling since there seems to be no credible information source!
