Hello,

I've been patching all computers at home to protect against the Spectre vulnerability and the last remaining computer is my Chuwi LapBook Air. As far as I can tell I have the latest BIOS installed and the operating system and all drivers are updated to the latest version. I'm using the InSpectre tool (https://www.grc.com/inspectre.htm) to check the status of each computer.

The result I get for my Chuwi LapBook Air is this:

Other computers had similar result until I updated BIOS to the latest version. After the BIOS updates all have YES/YES/YES/GOOD result.

Model: LapBook Air
EC Version: N14100406
BIOS Version: N1410AL.TE7.A0L3HWC3....

Is there a planned BIOS update to address the Spectre vulnerability for the LapBook Air?

Best regards

Just run Inspectre as Aministrator, click "Disable..." button, restart PC, run again to check. If Performance is GOOD, its OK

Hello chuchuchu. I didn't start this thread because of performance concerns but rather because of security concerns. Disabling protections is the opposite of what I want to do. Ideally I would like to see the YES/YES/YES result and I dont really care as much about what performance says. As far as I know this can only be achieved with an BIOS/MEI update. Do you know about any potenticial updates?

Best regards
