would you mind explaining how are Meltdown, Spectre, or Rowhammer related to Oberon running on RISC5 in the FPGA? How is Rowhammer related to the DDR2 memory, which is just a piece of hardware? What is evil concerning the SDRAM technology such as plain SDRAM, DDR, DDR2, or DDR3? I fail to see any problem, so please explain.

Please do not assume any prior knowledge concerning these strange names. 

Thank you,

PS: " Nexys DDR4 from Digilent" should be " Nexys 4 DDR from Digilent".
