    More big vulnerabilities. These are doozies, and they affect damn near every modern processor out there. Prepare yourselves for a ton of patches coming soon, and also note that not all of them have had time to be fully tested, so they may not provide reasonable defense, and may need to be re-patched later.

    One other comment, is to at least clear these from Nessus scan reports, go ahead and add a couple registry keys at “HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management” both are DWORDs, one with a Value named FeatureSettingsOverride with a data of 0, and the other named FeatureSettingsOverrideMask, with a data of 3. Best way to set these is through GPO, but you can also deploy quickly with a script if needed. I just patched about 400+ servers with this today, actually.
