    HP has just removed all the fixes from their website!

    here is what they say:

    In response to Intel’s recommendation, HP is taking the following actions:
    • HP is removing HP BIOS softpaqs with Intel microcode patches from hp.com.
    • HP will be reissuing HP BIOS softpaqs with previous Intel microcode starting January 25, 2018.
    • Once Intel reissues microcode updates, HP will issue revised Softpaqs.

    No Idea what went wrong~!

    Frequent spontaneous reboots after the MC update I reckon.

    Are you vulnerable? Try this very quick check:
    GRC
    Thanks for that, dalchina. From a reliable source as well. Very quick, too, as you stated.

    Same here. He sure does know his stuff. Surprised that site isn't mentioned here more often.

    Been using ShieldsUP for eons. He's the port ping king.
