-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA512 Dear Qubes Community,
The Qubes Security Team is currently investigating the extent to which [XSA-254] (and the [Meltdown] and [Spectre] attacks more generally) affect the security of Qubes OS. The practical impact of these attacks on Qubes is currently unclear. While the Qubes Security Team is a member of the [Xen predisclosure list], [XSA-254] was disclosed on an accelerated timetable ahead of schedule, so our team has not yet had a chance to analyze these attacks, nor has the Xen Project released any patches associated with [XSA-254]. We are continuing to monitor the situation closely. Once the Security Team makes a determination about the impact on Qubes, we will make another announcement, update the [XSA Tracker], and, if appropriate, issue a [Qubes Security Bulletin] with information about patching.
