Jakub, thanks for getting back to me.
Yes, that is correct. Do you personally work for Alpine? Is this an official answer from Alpine?

Subject: Re: [alpine-user] MELTDOWN + SPECTRE
did I understand correctly that you run Alpine only inside a Docker container, not a host system? If so, then there's nothing Alpine can do against Meltdown or Spectre. The host system (its kernel) must be patched.

I wanted to know if Alpine Linux is vulnerable to the recent Meltdown or Spectre attacks. Are there any patches? If running from within Docker, is there anything I need to do?
