Hello All, Microsoft today issued an emergency security update to
correct a security update it issued earlier this month to correct a
security update it issued in January and February. In January and
February, Microsoft released the fixes for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2
machines to Meltdown chip-level vulnerability in modern Intel x64
processors. Unfortunately, those patches leading normal applications and
logged-in users to access and modify any part of physical RAM, and gain
complete control. If you're using Windows 7 or Server 2008 R2 and have
applied Microsoft's Meltdown patches, you'll have to install today's
out-of-band update(KB4100480) for CVE-2018-1038. We have now created the
NVT to detect this vulnerability(soonwill be update into feed), Please
do scan with updated feed to detect the vulnerability andstrongly
recommended toapply security patches as soon as possible to stay secure.
Thanks, Antu Sanadi
