not sure if my ideapad is vulnerable to meltdown

2021-05-02, 3:39 AM

I recently purchased a new IdeaPad 3 14IIL05 with BIOS ver EMCN44WW

 

I ran a meltdown and spectre test with inspectre which can be downloaded from here https://www.grc.com/inspectre.htm

 

and It appears to be vulnerable to meltdown. the following is a screenshot of the test

But I also ran a different test by specucheck, the binary for that can be found here https://github.com/ionescu007/SpecuCheck

 

and I attached the following screenshot for the test result of CVE 2017-5754

but looking at specific information from intel's own database for spectre and meltdown vulnerabilities and searching for my specific cpu which is i5-1035G1 it shows that there is a hardware mitigation for the CVE.

 

so are the tests showing false positives ? if not then how do I enable mitigations for this ?

Hello,

 

From looking at the https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/3-series/ideapad-3-14iil05/downloads/ds543266 BIOS update for your model, it appears you have the latest version.

 

It looks like Inspectre was last updated in April 2019, and SpecuCheck in October, 2018.  It could be that the programs needs to be updated to recognize the Intel i5-1035G1 CPU, which was released in late 2019.  You would need to contact the authors to confirm that.
