    Check this post , Martin. It's suggested to check your MB/Vendor's site for BIOS/FW updates. I checked for my Dell Alienware, and got one dated 01/03/2108.

    Intel Issues Updates to Protect Systems from Security Exploits - Windows 10 Forums
    thanks for the prompt reply tomcat. Unfortunately, at the time of writing, Asus has yet to release a Bios Update for my mobo. I'm highly doubtful it will ever happen, but remain hopeful nonetheless. I think the next best thing to do is to update the CPU microcode, which is something the user can autonomously do, without the needing to wait for MOBO manufacturers to issue updates, as long as intel deploys the newer ones of course

    Probably unlikely anything over a couple of years old is likely to get a bios update.
    Also unlikely we are going to see any new processors without the problem until stocks of the latest ones have depleted unless Intel do a recall.
    Question is if it wasn't for the paranoia created by certain media sources, would anyone have ever known about let alone exploited the flaws? I suspect not.

    Nothing regarding the bios from Asus for my Z170P, I suspect my other boards are too old so not going to worry about it, don't keep anything worth stealing on computers or any important passwords.

    This Ars article specifically says that FF, Google and MS are patching their browsers (if they have not already done so):

    It still posts, though, yes?

    Brick to me means that one can no longer install an OS so to be worthless as a brick. Borked is another thing. It's recoverable. A PITA, but recoverable.
    I used the term Brick, because it wouldn't go past checking the BIOS. It just froze at the Dell logo screen.

    My laptop is a brick now. It won't even boot after restart.
    It must have fixed it's self overnight. It comes on now and seems to be working OK.

    Failed to install


    Hello,
    Quick question, I hope. Last night the computer indicated it needed a restart for the update. I did so and it seemed to restart and install. All the please wait and 1 of 2 stuff. After I went to Update History an it indicated that KB4056892 had failed to install. I ran an update check and it indicated no new updates. Ran the manual install for this version and while installing it indicated that it was checking for updates and then that I had them all.
    Any way to check if I have the correct updates?
    Thanks for any assistance

    I see a lot of ppl reporting just their patch's install experience, which is fine. Unfortunately no one is shedding some light on the bigger question: is this patch enough for people to be reasonably safe or do we need other updates? If so, which ones? Besides updating internet browsers, do we need to update the cpu microcode as well? Is a MB Bios flash necessary? I'm having difficulty imagining Asus, Gigabyte and others releasing bios updates for their older models (3/4+ years old). I seriously hope that update won't be needed, otherwise we'll never be truly "safe".
    Anyway, shoud you guys need it, here are the latest official intel cpu microcodes, dated 11/2017, which can be updated under windows via a simple program called VMWare Cpu Microcode Update Driver. Download links for both to follow:
    - Download Linux* Processor Microcode Data File
    - VMware CPU Microcode Update Driver

    Should you people come across useful info while surfing the web please don't hesitate to share them among the users. It's the only way for a lot of ppl out there to get informed. Thank you everyone.
    THIS ^^^ is the type of post that makes Ten Forums the first site a log on to when I wake up, and the last thing I read before I call it a night. From the above link, VMware CPU Microcode Update Driver, I was able to download both the Intel microcode for my Intel Core i5-3320m processor and the software to install the microcode update. Instructions are on the above linked page and are a breeze to follow. Worked a treat for my laptop. I had to follow this procedure because my laptop is 5 years old and Dell hasn't released a bios update in over 2 years.

    Have a care! I too downloaded the cpumcupdate2.1 zip file from the link you quote but all the files in it are dated 2016 as is the article itself, including the Changelog. Is this really recent enough, and how can it be a fix for ALL BIOSs? I'm cautious!!!!!

    Maybe the original poster of the link @MartinMDL might comment please.

    Meltdown can’t be fixed with microcode.

    Why have a PC then? I agree with not keeping a txt file on your pc with all your passwords. I keep mine in a book. If you’re going to have online accounts, your passwords are going to have to pass through your PC.

    As for your pics, dox, etc. they’re just going to be on there and whatever happens happens....

    All you can do is keep your OS/apps up to date, properly secure your PC with antimalware/adblocker/firewall, do regular backups and hope for the best.

    Nothing is 100%. A major flaw with AMD CPUs could be announced tomorrow.
