Meltdown/Spectre/Foreshadow remediation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working from a Nessus scan and it shows we need to remediate both Meltdown/Spectre and Foreshadow but from what I read it looks like they have conflicting registry entries.  Both use the same registry entries, am I totally off base in my understanding on how to remediate or is there a way to put in multiple DWords for the same entry.  Thanks!!

  • Hello,
    Thank you for posting in our TechNet forum.

    From the article Windows Server guidance to protect against speculative execution side-channel vulnerabilities, we should be able to create these registry entries.




    For more information, we can refer to the above article.
