    If I'm not mistaken, microcode updates will be/is available from Intel and AMD. Will those be available through normal Windows/Linux/OSX update channels, or do you have to find them on the CPU manufacturers sites?

    Haha no neither of those.
    You have to go to your mb manufacturer and get the bios update.

    Linux doesn't need bios microcode updates you can just patch the kernel.


    Windows can and has(in the past) rolled out microcode updates via windows updates alltough I'm not sure why they won't in this case.

    Linux does indeed directly apply firmware updates for CPUs.

    AMD sound like they're doing likewise https://hardware.slashdot.org/story/...ulnerabilities

    Intel is unable to deny some issues caused by their fix to the original issues.

    They can but are unlikely to do so. Not their hardware to be fucking with.

    Yeah but I'm not talking hypothetically. Ms and Intel have announced for thisissue you need a biosupdate.

    One thing to keep in mind when talking about "rolling out micorcode patch": this isn't your normal OS/app patch, which gets applied once and then it's done (~a bunch of faulty files gets repalced with fixed ones). A microcode patch is non-persistant and is - applied/run on every machine boot by the OS.
