Last week, AMD said that there was "near-zero risk" to its processors with regard to the Spectre and Meltdown security flaws, due to differences in AMD's chip architecture. "To prevent this issue, Microsoft will temporarily pause Windows OS updates to devices with impacted AMD processors at this time", Microsoft said on its website.
And Microsoft and AMD are working on the issue, but the fact that an unknown number of PC owners with AMD CPUs are going to have to wait to have their devices protected from the risky bug is incredibly disappointing.
Microsoft customers also logged in several complaints on Microsoft forum page. It's been nearly a week since Microsoft rolled out the KB4056892 security update for Windows 10, and some AMD users are reporting system freezes after installing it.
Meltdown and Spectre patches for Windows 10, 8.1 and 7 were shipped as a cumulative update with some other improvements. I can try full reinstall, but I doubt it will change anything. Especially if my CPU is not vulnerable to the Meltdown attack and the MS mitigation attempts for Spectre is more than questionable.
AMD processors are technically not affected by the Meltdown vulnerability, and the company has been maintaining that it also immune to the threat imposed by Spectre.
Affected machines have been forced into "an unbootable state" because some AMD chips do not match up with documentation previously given to Microsoft by the semiconductor manufacturer, according to the Redmond, Wash. -based computing giant.
