Ažurirani firmver dostupan za Intel Core procesore za 6., 7. i 8. generaciju



Intel today shared in a blog post that they are deploying microcode solutions that have been developed and validated over the last several weeks. These updates aim to patch security vulnerabilities recently found in Intel processors, and will be distributed, mostly, via OEM firmware updates - users who want to have their system hardened against Spectre and Meltdown exploits will have to ensure that their system manufacturer of choice makes these microcode updates available. If they don't do it in a timely fashion, users have no choice but to be vocal about that issue - Intel has now done its part in this matter.

Ovo je drugi val Intelove zakrpe za ublažavanje ranjivosti Spectre i Meltdown-a, nakon prvog, brzopletog zakrpa poslao je korisnike na nestabilne, rušeće sustave i neizbježni povraćaj ažuriranja. Sigurnost je već bila uspostavljena, svojevrsno, za Intelove procesore Skylake, ali korisnike bilo koje druge pogođene Intelove porodice procesora ostavili su na hladnoći. Evo u nadi da je ovo jedno ažuriranje koje se zapravo zalijepi nakon temeljitog testiranja i provjere valjanosti.
