Is there an official statement from IBM regarding Meltdown and Spectre on System z (or is it System Z)?

I saw that Red Hat and SuSE have stated that there is the exposure with Linux on z.

Thank you

What's funny, there is no clue for registered users. If you forgot the
URLm your'e (almost) lost.
While I understand the reason for keeping such information for
registered user (*), it's completely unreasonable to keep the address
secret.

(*) People say security by obscurity is no security. However sometimes
it's a matter of time It's better to give the user a head start, not the
hackers. ;-)
