KB4100480 third attempt at a fix for the Meltdown security vulnerability

The out-of-band emergency update, KB4100480, was released by Microsoft last week to supplement a patch released in early March to address severe vulnerabilities accidentally introduced by Redmond’s engineers in their January and February security updates for Meltdown on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 systems. It seems that this patch is far away from being ‘finished’.

KB4100480 fixes a CVE in Windows 7, Embedded & Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 systems

Microsoft released yesterday a new KB, the new KB4100480 fixes a security hole (CVE-2018-1038). The update itself is only available for x64 systems. Microsoft itself doesn’t show much, a proper changelog is – as always – missing. But that’s an old cap.
