Not to install new security patch from Intel

Intel Security

Intel has introduced a new patch to address security issue which is a buggy one and has affected millions of processors worldwide.

This update is introduced for Window 7, 8.1 and 10 which caused the machine to reboot unexpectedly.

Microsoft disabled this patch update for now and stopped the rebooting issue.

People also have reported data loss and corruption. Intel is criticized hugely by the security researcher as two separate security flaws are known as Meltdown and Spectre were also disclosed in January which is certainly not expected from Intel.

“Microsoft saving the day while Intel drags its feet with incompetent patches leading not only to system instability, but also data corruption in some cases,” wrote Artem Russakovskii, founder of the smartphone news site Android Police.

On 22 January, Intel told customers not to install one of the security updates it had issued, as the software patch was causing more problems.

The company said it had reproduced the problem and was “making progress toward identifying the root cause”.

Microsoft said there were no known reports of the security issue being used to attack computers.
