Meltdown and Spectre

Just curious if anyone know anything about these two vulnerabilities with Solaris.

Does anyone know if OpenIndiana / Illumos are susceptible to this attack and if any proof of concept has been written and is available?

There are no patches for illumos yet because they just weren't informed in time:

However, depending on the architecture, it may be safe. SPARCv9 is not affected by Meltdown.
