Opdateret firmware tilgængelig for 6., 7. og 8. generation Intel Core-processorer

Intel today shared in a blog post that they are deploying microcode solutions that have been developed and validated over the last several weeks. These updates aim to patch security vulnerabilities recently found in Intel processors, and will be distributed, mostly, via OEM firmware updates - users who want to have their system hardened against Spectre and Meltdown exploits will have to ensure that their system manufacturer of choice makes these microcode updates available. If they don't do it in a timely fashion, users have no choice but to be vocal about that issue - Intel has now done its part in this matter.

Dette er den anden bølge af Intels patches til at afhjælpe Specter og Meltdown sårbarheder, efter den første, hastige patch sendt brugere mod ustabile, nedbrudte systemer og den uundgåelige opdatering rollback. Der var allerede genindført sikkerhed for Intels Skylake-processorer, men efterlod brugere af enhver anden berørt Intel CPU-familie ude i kulden. Her håber, at dette er den ene opdatering, der faktisk sidder fast efter grundig test og validering.
