"FYI tell your friends, the first places Spectre related malware is likely to show up? .. those "download to see this movie" apps. We internet poor do love our stolen goods."

Quite right. I dont run AV at home, because I am the only one there and I dont do stupid shit like that. The machines I made for gf and stepson have plenty of AV , because they will click on anything.

If people could just learn to not download executables ( or to download them from a suitable URL ) everything would be fine.

In fact I think I will start imposing corporate lock down type policys on friends and family.
