Default Microsoft kills off Spectre patch

Your computer is safe from Intel patch, it is just insecure again

Microsoft has released an emergency Windows update to disable Intel's troublesome microcode fix for the Spectre Variant 2 attack.

Not only was Intel's fix for the Spectre attack causing reboots and stability issues, but Microsoft found it resulted in the worse scenario of data loss or corruption in some circumstances.
