KB4078130 disables the latest Spectre updates on Windows 7, 8.1, 10

Intel posts record high $62.8 billion 2017 revenue, Meltdown Spectre flaws benefit

Intel had confirmed two security flaws - and - in its chips that were vulnerable to hacking.

Intel notified Chinese companies about security flaws in its processor chips, according to some sources. The problem for some people, including Linus Torvalds, was that Intel's initial response was lackluster. Created to prevent problems related to Intel's flawed patches for the Spectre vulnerability, the Microsoft fixes must be downloaded manually from the company's Windows Update catalog. Windows 10 KB4078130 offline installer can be downloaded from Microsoft's Update Catalog and the update removes the Spectre Variant 2 vulnerability which was causing random reboots on some PCs powered by Intel processor.

The issues Intel's patch caused were revealed last week when Intel admitted that its was causing some machines to reboot unexpectedly. Intel's update that was meant to make your device more secure is resulting in unexpected reboots and more alarming, data loss or corruption. The chipmaker asked that users stop applying the issued fix on January 22. The update is now available from the Microsoft Update Catalog website and while it disables Intel's microcode fixes it does leave the fixes for the other two Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities intact. Intel is testing the new update on all processor to ensure that no performance and reboot issues occur in the patched systems. There are a pair of Knowledge Base articles that walk users through this manual process here and here.

Did Lady Gaga just confirm her engagement?
Then, she let the crowd know that her performance was dedicated to a certain angel of her own. Some hours before the Grammys , she tweeted about her look and the nominations.

The disclosure timeline raises the possibility that elements of the Chinese government may have known about the vulnerabilities before United States tech giant Intel disclosed then to the American government and the public.

Intel may be in hot water following revelations that it disclosed information about the unsafe Meltdown and Spectre flaws to certain Chinese customers before notifying the United States government.

If the ignominy of having to deal with a design flaw of their chips isn't enough, Intel is now in the midst of another controversy that revolves around whom it contacted first to reveal the design flaw.

Other companies such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft were also notified beforehand which is why they were so prompt to release statements as soon as the matter was leaked by The Register.
