Note from the SUSE Security Team

This issue allows leaking of cryptographic operations across hyperthreads on the same core. Mitigations can be to disable hyperthreading/synchronous multithreading, as described in L1 Terminal Fault CVE TID. We will also be working on further hardening of openssl and other cryptographic libraries against this kind of side channel information leak.
