InSpectre has been updated to release #7 : https://www.grc.com/...tem=18254&utag=
As I discussed on the podcast yesterday, Microsoft will be
taking some responsibility for patching Intel (and eventually
perhaps AMD?) processor microcode on-the-fly when Windows boots.
That's TERRIFIC news! But it's going to create confusion...
As Microsoft's current page shows, they will be incrementally
releasing microcode by specific processor, keyed to the CPUID.
Since this will create a HUGE DEMAND for people to know what
their own CPUID is, and since it's not obvious, I have updated
GRC's InSpectre app to release #7 to include a report of this:
The internal text is also updated to aim people whose processors
are not yet updated, to the Microsoft knowledgebase page by
searching the Internet for the string "KB4090007":
I have not yet updated the InSpectre homepage to discuss this,
nor have I made release #7 public. I wanted to give everyone
here the opportunity to check it out first. If anything appears
to be wrong with it... I'm all ears! Thanks everyone!!
Since that news group post was made the release has been uploaded at the link in the first post here.
