By now, I'm sure most of you have read about or heard something about some pretty major issues with your computers, tablets, phones, etc. Meltdown patches should already be flowing to everyone who use Intel processors. It will probably take a few weeks before the dust settles with that one, but fixes are coming. As for Spectre, well... To put it bluntly, we're screwed. This goes to the underlying architecture of ALL processors used in your computers, tablets, phones, etc. And the problem here isn't really "patchable". In order to correctly fix this one, the chip manufacturers will have to completely redesign certain aspects of their CPUs. This doesn't happen overnight and will realistically take a few years to correct. There will be patches sent out that will help mitigate the issue, but it won't be a "fix" per se. Is this something to be worried about? Yes and no. As usual, good Internet practices come into play where you need to be aware of links you click on. Some of the vulnerability requires direct access to your computer, so most won't need to worry about that. So, in essence, it's business as usual, but you do need to be aware of what you're clicking on. Bottom line, ensure you're doing your updates in a timely manner (this includes ALL OSs and applications).
