THE WOODLANDS, TX, Feb. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Optium Cyber Systems, Inc. (OCSI) (OTC:OCSY) is now offering clients a specialized consulting service to assist with the issues caused by the recently discovered Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities allow hackers to steal sensitive data without users knowing and effect practically every computing device manufactured in the last 20 years including laptops, desktops, tablets, smartphones and even cloud computing systems. The flaws are so fundamental and widespread that security researchers and tech industry insiders are calling them “catastrophic”
“The Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities have broken basic security for practically any computer manufactured in the last two decades;” proclaimed Doug Binenti, Chief Technical Officer of Optium Cyber Systems, Inc. “The recent revelations about Meltdown and Spectre have wreaked digital havoc and left a mass of confusion in their wake. Not only are these vulnerabilities terrifically complex, the fixes that exist come in patchwork fashion from multiple sources. A solution requires involvement of multiple players including processor manufacturers, hardware manufacturers and software developers. Groups like Microsoft, Apple, Google, and Amazon have all been interacting and collaborating with researchers, manufacturers and developers to push out fixes. For the end user this is incredibly confusing, not to mention frustrating, and without a tech expert overseeing the process there is no guarantee that the software being downloaded and installed will result in a specific machine operating in a secure and efficient manner. This is where the OCSI team will step in. We will provide a client with an initial evaluation, then clarification establishing exactly what upgrades need to be sourced and then implement those upgrades in a timely and cost-effective manner. We can also assist in finding ways to mitigate situations that cannot be patched and provide alternative solutions;” continued Mr. Binenti.
