The company also explains that it "has not received any information to indicate that these vulnerabilities have been used to attack customers at this time."You can check the list of Surface gear that will receive the patch at the link above, but Microsoft says the updates will be available devices running Windows 10 with Windows Update or through the Microsoft Download Center.Virtuozzo Ready Kernel is a kpatch-based service shipped with Virtuozzo 7 and available out-of-the-box on hardware nodes with active licenses.
The exact details of the flaw haven’t been made clear to avoid giving out any more details than necessary.
If later you install a new kernel or major kernel update that requires a reboot, the downloaded patches will remain on the server but will not be applied.
If automatic updating was not disabled during the installation, Ready Kernel will check for new patches daily at server time.
Update: Intel has issued a response to reports of a critical flaw in its CPUs, saying the issue is not "unique" to its processors and that it is working with AMD and ARM to find a solution.
Intel's statement also shot down claims that patching the flaw could lead to PC performance slow down by up to 30%, saying that, "Contrary to some reports, any performance impacts are workload-dependent, and, for the average computer user, should not be significant and will be mitigated over time." Intel urges users to check with their OS vendor or system manufacturer and apply updates as they arrive.
What is clear is that this must be fixed as soon as possible, with operating system kernels needing to be redesigned in order to completely separate the kernel’s memory from any user processes and programs.
