Missing Meltdown KB4056897

Missing Meltdown KB4056897

Postby Revan » 24.09.2019, 16:42

Hello everyone,

I need to make sure that my machine is protected against Meltdown, but I realized that I was missing the KB4056897 update. Does WSUS not download or install the Meltdown KB4056897 update? Is that something that needs to be done manually? I checked the exclude files and it's not listed there.

Thank you for your time.

KB4056897 is the Security-Only update for January 2018. Did you enable the checkbox in UpdateDownloader that makes it download the security-only updates instead of the monthly rollups? If not, security-only updates won't be downloaded, including that one.

The full CU from January '18 also contains everything the complete SecOnly feature set. Even if you do not use SecOnly, you will be protected.

Find out using InSpectre.
