Testing for Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities

Whether or not you like Steve Gibson’s tools [a.k.a. Gibson Research Corporation], he has released a tool here to test for the Spectre & Meltdown Vulnerability.

If you applied an OS patch, the Meltdown test will most likely pass. Spectre, however, will most likely fail until Intel releases firmware/microcode for their CPUs [or manufacturer BIOS updates].

The results of my main computer.

You can run without administrative rights unless you want to disable/enable the protections.
