Inspectre

Rene ran Steve Gibson's Inspectre tool for her computer and it says it needs to be patched to avoid the latest Meltdown exploit. She's checked with her motherboard maker and they haven't put out a BIOS patch. So should she stop using her computer? Leo says no. There's no current danger for end users yet. She should just keep her computer updated as best she can and check with her motherboard maker every once in a while.
