Quick Heal For Windows
Intel Processors Security Flaw
started a topic
6 months ago
Microsoft released an emergency update on January 3 for most Windows PCs to fix the newly-discovered Intel processor flaw dubbed Meltdown. Although Microsoft has said that certain antivirus softwares are incompatible with the update. The relevant Microsoft Knowledge Base Article says that computers running an antivirus incompatible with the update will not receive it until the antivirus vendor releases a compatibility update and sets the following registry key. Key="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE"Subkey="SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\QualityCompat"Value="cadca5fe-87d3-4b96-b7fb-a231484277cc" Type="REG_DWORD” Microsoft has also released a publicly accessible list of antivirus programs that are compatible with the said update. Quick Heal is not in the list though. So I wanted to know if Quick Heal is compatible with the update, but if not, is the Quick Heal Security team working on releasing an update. I have given links to the relevant Microsoft Knowledge Base Articles below.
