Crucially, these updates to both Linux and Windows will incur a
performance hit on Intel products. The effects are still being
benchmarked, however we're looking at a ballpark figure of five
to 30
per cent slow down, depending on the task and the processor model.

Howto patch Spectre Vulnerability CVE-2017-5753/CVE-2017-5715 on Linux


Shouldn't a security update be pushed through the Ubuntu update

Notice that for Ubuntu you use apt/apt-get which to my knowledge does
get it's updates from the Ubuntu repositories or/and any others you
have installed.

That's why I asked.

I get kernels updates without using apt-get.

I got a boatload of updates this morning.

There are some ways to get updates in "debianish" distros, like Ubuntu. However, if you do both, nothing strange or repeated will happen. What one does, the other does not repeat, unless, of course, if you do it in a way that forces to download again, compile again, or anything else that what you wanted should do.
