POSReady 2009 updates ported to Windows XP SP3 ENU

Recommended Posts

NTFS is a bad choice for the media with low write cycles like USB flash sticks or SD cards, because journaling means extra writes. ExFat is better for them.

Thanks!  This confirms that the XP updates resolved neither Spectre or Meltdown for me.  And both my Win 10 machines are susceptible to Spectre.

On the subject of Meltdown and Specter, according to this test, an Intel P4 is affected. Unfortunately, it is the problem that Intel still AMD published a more detailed list of affected CPU's. A patch for Windows can unfortunately mitigate this problem, even if the BIOS / UEFI the microcode was patched, the real problem remains. Only a new CPU helps where the architecture no longer allows these forms of attacks.

:crazy:

In any case, take such software from Steve Gibson with more than one grain of salt... he's been involved in too many controversies to be trusted blindly.

Inspectre new version 0.0.6591.2:

https://www.grc.com/inspectre.htm

 

Quote

Windows Defender “SmartScreen” appears to have decided that InSpectre is malware. This also happened briefly after the release of our Never10 utility. In this case, it is likely due to the fact that InSpectre's initial release was triggering anti-virus scanners due to the program's use of a registry key used to enable and disable the Meltdown and Spectre protections. This second release obscures its use of that (apparently worrisome) key and now appears to pass through most A/V without trouble. So this SmartScreen false alarm will hopefully disappear soon.

They must have just updated it.  0.0.6591.3 is out now.  It still works the same and I didn't have any of the errors it was supposed to correct.

Bersaglio - thanks.  No wonder my XP machine started spewing steam like a humidifier.  (Honey, unplug that and hand me a towel.)

InSpectre ver 5.

My situation:

 

This 32-bit OS on Intel Processor:

OS is Meltdown aware: No
OS is Spectre aware: No
OS Meltdown data: n/a
OS Spectre data: n/a
PCID/INVPCID instructions: No / No
CPU microcode updated: Yes
CPU is meltdown vulnerable: Yes

This system's processor identification:
Intel Celeron M processor / 1.60GHz

 

P.S. Right click on the "ghosted " box symbol shown in Inspectre window. Then select "Tech details." It show you everything that "probe" was supposed to and much more.

Specter only affects processors without FSB. Celeron M 520, 420 or 380 has FSB: https://ark.intel.com/es-es/search?q=celeron+m+1.60

InSpectre is bad. Better to use any of the following:

https://github.com/ionescu007/SpecuCheck/releases

or https://www.ashampoo.com/en/usd/pin/1304/security-software/spectre-meltdown-cpu-checker

or the powershell script of Microsoft: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4073119/protect-against-speculative-execution-side-channel-vulnerabilities-in

SpecuCheck does not works on XP.

Must be recompiled.

_______________________________________

Specucontrol and Ashampoo not works on XP.

In addition both tools need Powershell and the NET Framework
