Protect your Windows devices against Spectre and Meltdown   

Microsoft is aware of new vulnerabilities in hardware processors named "Spectre" and "Meltdown". These are a newly discovered class of vulnerabilities based on a common chip architecture that, when originally designed, was created to speed up computers. The technical name is "speculative execution side-channel vulnerabilities". You can learn more about these vulnerabilities at Google Project Zero.

Who is affected?

Affected chips include those manufactured by Intel, AMD, and ARM, which means all devices running Windows operating systems are potentially vulnerable (e.g., desktops, laptops, cloud servers, and smartphones).
