Is Your Antivirus Blocking Microsoft's Chip Patch?

KB4056894 bsod 0x000000c4

Security updates to Internet Explorer, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Microsoft Edge, Windows Graphics, Windows Kernel, Windows Subsystem for Linux, and the Windows SMB Server. In addition, organizations wanting to use Accelerated Networking have to use Azure Resource Manager management portal to deploy it. It can't be deployed using the older "classic" portal. It also comes with a USB 3.0 port, and a Microsoft Surface Connector, so you can dock it, which gives you all the ports you'll ever need. It says it will deliver a patch for the mobile and desktop versions of its Safari Web browser "in the coming days" for Spectre, a more complicated vulnerability that affects AMD and ARM chips as well as Intel's, to complicate a hostile site's attempts to attack that flaw. All but a small single-digit percentage of instances across the Amazon EC2 fleet are already protected.

But if you're a Windows user and haven't received Microsoft's patches yet, Microsoft warns that the reason is your antivirus isn't compatible with its Windows update. In fact, Microsoft says in a Sunday alert that neither KB4056892 nor any future security updates will be installed so long as they're running incompatible anti-virus software.

Bring Your Own License (BYOL) customers, and customers who have changed the default update setting in their WorkSpaces should manually apply the security updates provided by Microsoft.

Those users which are affected can fall back on Windows Defender for Windows 10 devices or Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows 7 devices, the firm claimed.

Microsoft has claimed that most Azure customers "should not see a noticeable performance impact" from its Windows patch mitigations. While the company has completed testing and confirmed compatibility, customers who rely on Windows Update currently need to set the registry key themselves. The technology's sector's love of grand sounding names has led to the flaws being dubbed the "Meltdown and Spectre bugs". As per the revised schedule, the Windows 10 free upgrade offer will expire on January 16, 2018.

Or Microsoft stepped on the rollout gas with the FCU, damn the torpedoes, because it had been criticised for the slower pace of earlier in 2017.

This bulletin will be updated as we have new information to share on the availability of improved AMIs, patches, and any other recommended actions for AWS customers. "After 3 rollbacks, found this tread so I don't feel totally stupid for having wasted most of my Sunday trying to 'fix' this now known to be un-fixable problem".

The Meltdown and Spectre flaw affects all devices with Intel processors. The Surface Pro starts at $799, but if you want the full brawn of a laptop, it could run you as much as $2,699, and the performance differs substantially from one level to the next. Make sure that your antivirus software is up-to-date and compatible with the update. The problem? Certain third-party antivirus products can conflict with the fix.
