Free Linux Tool Monitors Systems for Meltdown Attacks

By Jack M. Germain

SentinelOne has released Blacksmith, a free Linux tool that can detect Meltdown vulnerability exploitation attempts. The company has been working on a similar tool to detect Spectre vulnerability attacks. Though free, Blacksmith is not open source. SentinelOne decided to expedite its development in-house to save time, said Raj Rajamani, vice president of project management. The company has made the tool available to everyone for free in the hope of securing Linux systems while reliable patches are developed.
