    KB4100347 is a new update for the latest version of Windows 10, Windows 10 version 1803, which Microsoft released on April 30, 2018 to the public.

    The feature update has its fair share of issues; users complain about incompatibilities with certain Solid State Drives, bluescreens, missing network devices, and other issues.

    One of the things that I noticed right away after installing the April 2018 Update for Windows 10 on a test system was that it did not include the microcode update that protects it from Spectre attacks.

    What made this particularly problematic was that Microsoft released microcode updates for previous versions of Windows 10. Systems went from a protected state to an unprotected one in worst case if users or administrators installed the microcode update on devices running previous versions of Windows 10 before running the upgrade to the latest version.

    Tip: you can run the free software inSpectre to find out if a Windows PC is patched and whether microcode updates are available.
