Spectre and Meltdown Vulnerabilities

5 Jan

This is most likely an on-going post, but a few notes about the recently discovered Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities:

  • Intel have release a tool to check your exposure, download it here.
  • In Chrome Desktop Browser you can try setting “Enable-site-per-process” by navigating to: chrome://flags/#enable-site-per-process
  • Microsoft released KB4056892 on January 3rd.

 

It’s obviously worth always getting all of the latest drivers and BIOS for your machine from your manufactures website.
