Intel Meltdown and Spectre

risk.jpgSurprises are at times peculiar. Your desktop is on one end and my is the opposite. I also ran Intel DiscoveryTool.GUI with Virtual Memory enable and disable. It told me that "This System is not vulnerable". I have mix feelings that is going to be unnerving for me. Processor is solder to the board, possible no update for this type of CPU. Only patients, is my only option. I'll keep you post on what Hewlett-Packard issue any updates for this system.

Intel Meltdown and Spectre

Hi,

 

Yesterday (Sunday January 14, 2018) I took time to update some of my machines including my loaner which is an HP Elitebook x360 1030 G2. They are all Windows 10 (Pro and Home):

 

1. I used a fix from HP for the Elitebook, result

2. I could not find a fix for other machines therefore I use Microsoft updates including KB4056892  and results

Regards.

@redscarlett: the test tool you used has nothing to do with meltdown or spectre. Your system is still vulnerable.

@treysis -- is there a reason why you just said to @redscarlett that your sytem is still vulnerable?? I would like to see your reason for this to @redscarlett.

@jpmackay1: Well, if @redscarlett only used the Intel-SA-00086 detection tool and didn't install any other updates, then the system is vulnerable. If @redscarlett installed the latest Windows updates, then at least the system SHOULD be patched against Meltdown, that is unless there's a non-compatible anti-virus software. Because Microsoft stated, that some anti-virus software is incompatible with the update, and therefor those systems won't receive the Windows update.

As for Spectre, if @redscarlett didn't install any BIOS update, then Spectre mitigation cannot work.

Since @redscarlett didn't mention any of this, this is why I ultimately assumed his system is still vulnerable!

System Information

Born on Date: 07/25/2015

System ID: 2B28

BIOS REV.: NUT vA0.10

BIOS Date: 01/15/2016

I've try to install A0.10 03/09/2016. The result was as expected.

Patients is all I got. KB4056898 and KB4056895 is installed. KB4056892 for Windows 10 took 3 attempts in 120 minute.

Time to turn on the toaster oven to high. put the PITA in and scorch it. That is a Intel Logo.

Not sure if it's not a typo (has there ever been an Omen X 870-xxx on the market?) but hey!

Finally to see HP have the patch for all of Omen #870-xxx desktops but why wait till Feb 9th. I guess that HP want to have more testing before release the patch to all Omen #870-xxx desktop users.

 

Thank you,

 

John

Intel has pulled all microcode updates. Will take some time before new BIOS updates will be available.
