Obscurity is extremely valuable for defense in depth
While otherwise an informative article, the author pillories "security by obscurity" as if there were an explicit decision to base an entire security architecture on concealing a vulnerability.  This is not the case with the Intel microprocessor vulnerabilities and muddies the importance of defense in depth and obstructing the visibility of target points.  Every minute you cost an attacker in finding out the place to attack costs him money and adds to your window for detecting and defeating the attack.

What disturbs me is
The sheer length of time it took for this to be known ---- and it has been a design feature for many years now.  Why the silence and, by the same token, since we are all SCREAMING ABOUT IT ---- Are not the hackers doubling down on their exploits NOW before it is at least partly patched???    Methinks we should too much sometimes.
