Windows 10 Will Be Automatically Updated Today

The first big security flaw of 2018 is a doozy. Exploits knows as Spectre and Meltdown are getting a lot of media coverage. Without going into a ton of detail, these are flaws in the processing architecture of CPUs made by Intel, AMD, and ARM. In other words, a major problem that affects thousands of devices. While not all the problems can be solved with software updates, some can. In the wake of this, Microsoft is issuing an emergency patch that will automatically be applied to all Windows 10-based systems this afternoon. Other supported versions of Windows will not be updated until next week.
