Meltdown and Spectre are serious vulnerabilities built into the chip set of nearly all the computers including brand new ones on sale in the stores.
I have been trying to get all my kit patched, Most windows 10 patched Meltdown with an update but not Spectre which is apparently more difficult to fix.
My servers refused to take any of the MS patches despite running Server 2016.
I know there was problems with the patch, AV and a required registry key needed to be present for the patch to run. In the end the only way I got Meltdown protection was a re image and ran updates before install anything else.
You can check the status of a computer using the free InSpectre tool [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
Has anyone else had any problems with this ?
