How to Make Sure Your PC is Safe from Meltdown and Spectre?


1) Read this Step-by-Step Guide
2) InSpectre Tool Download



NOTE: While Intel has now issued Firmware updates for CPUs introduced in the past 5 years, Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro (20266) - Intel Core i7 4500U Haswell with "only" 3 years old isn't even listed under Lenovo Security Advisory LEN-18282 (NO ETA FOR US) as detailed HERE.


Please Lenovo keep us safe supporting your costumers with a proper Firmware update ASAP.

Best Regards,

I used InSpectre last night and it was quick to show me all is in place with minimal performance limiting impact.  


I fact checked before downloading it and found Is your PC vulnerable to Meltdown and Spectre CPU exploits? InSpectre tells you from PCWorld 


Also had tell my paid antivirus software it's okay and let me run it.

InSpectre” is an easy to use & understand utility designed to clarify
the many overlapping and confusing aspects of any Windows
system's ability to prevent the Meltdown and Spectre attacks.
