Recently two important CPU vulnerabilities were published:

Meltdown and Spectre 

Seems like at least one of them could impact ARM cores. 

What is the impact of these vulnerabilities on i.MX processors?

NXP advises customers to write an email to the NXP Product Security Incident Response Team at psirt[@]nxp.com. It is required that you indicate the specific part and operating system that your question refers to in order to be able providing support in the best way.
For end users using NXP processors but not buying semiconductors from NXP directly or through distributors, we have to refer to the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) as any security analysis needs to be done on a system level.
