    Intel is advising OEMs and partners to halt patching for the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities amid numerous reports the updates are causing reboot issues on systems running the Broadwell and Haswell microprocessors.

    “We recommend that OEMs, cloud service providers, system manufacturers, software vendors, and end users stop deployment of current versions, as they may introduce higher than expected reboots and other unpredictable system behavior,” said Navin Shenoy, EVP and GM of Intel’s data center group, in a blog post Monday.
