SpecuCheck icon Check if your computer could be among potential victims of the Meltdown and Spectre attacks using this simple and straightforward application

The fact that hackers keep up with the trends is not something new and exploits such as Meltdown and Spectre stand proof of that. Both of them take advantage of the reported vulnerabilities of the chip processors and gain unauthorized access to the computer's memory. From here, they can read all data stored inside, including passwords saved in browsers, business documents or your private conversations on social networks.

SpecuCheck is a tiny utility designed to check the latest firmware patching and help you determine whether your system has potential vulnerabilities that can be exploited by Spectre and Meltdown.

It can confirm or infirm if the latest Windows patches are applied properly

The application can be run as a command, so it does not have an interface per se. Nevertheless, it can be considered user-friendly, as all you need to do is run it through Command Line or PowerShell and find out whether the patching is applied correctly on your system.

To put it simply, the tool provides information regarding whether the mitigations and security features that are vulnerable are enabled or disabled. In case the latest patch was not applied, then the app displays it in a message, so you know exactly what you need to do next.

A reliable utility to help protect your system against Spectre and Meltdown exploits

The best thing you can do to ensure your computer does not get infected is to apply the latest patches for your operating system right away. In fact, Microsoft has already released the patches necessary to mitigate Meltdown and are currently working on an equally efficient solution for Spectre.

In the eventuality that you would like to learn more about the vulnerabilities of your system or the means through which threats such as Meltdown or Spectre can make their way into your PC, then perhaps you can consider giving SpecuCheck a try.
