FYI: while applying Software Updates to my Linux virtual machine I happened to notice this update log entry for "GNU Standard C++ Library":

2018-03-24 Jeff Law <***@redhat.com> 4.4.7-22
. Spectre mitigations patch for s390x (#1553817)


So apparently the Spectre security vulnerability impacted IBM too! Interesting, yes?

Yes.
This was a architectural design issue and anything implementing speculative execution was affected including system z and all of its os’es
