    Windows Guests - Intel Processor Bugs aka Meltdown Spectre January 2018 KB4056892 KB4056897 - Are virtualized environments also at risk?

      Microsoft has created updated for Windows 7 - Windows 10 to workaround the Intel processor security issues that were recently disclosed. (Note you can find manual downloads by searching for KB4056892 KB4056897)

       

      I am running Windows 7 as a guest under a Linux host.

       

      I plan on patching Linux when an update is available.

       

      Do I also need to patch the Windows 7 guest or is it not susceptible because it is running as a VM?

       

      Thanks!
