Also is this exploit a one size fits all? What I mean is say someone develops a program to exploit this.. Will it need to be designed for each processor or will it literally hit the big three (Intel, ARM, AMD)?

As I understand it, only Intel is affected by Meltdown, but Spectre potentially affects all processors built since the 90s.
