Hi Experts,

We have a warning message stating: "This host is potentially vulnerable to issues described in CVE-2018-3646"

Just getting peoples thoughts on enabling the hyperthreading mitigation settings option detailed here: Will this cause a significant impact on performance on VM's running on the host?  Any issues been found enabling this setting? The hosts in question use very little CPU processing, and are nowhere near capacity.

Thanks for your help.
