    You are supposed to get pti. That means you are patched!

    Re: Meltdown and Spectre Discussion Sticky

    Hi, does Linux kernel 4.4 and 3.13 for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 32-bit also got spectre&meltdown patches? I got two computers running 32-bit 14.04 with these kernels.

    My 16.04 install was just updated to 4.13. As you probably know PCID is only supported starting in 4.14. I take it I would have to install a mainline kernel OR wait til 16.04.4 to make use of my CPU's PCID capability, is that correct?

    No patches for 32-bit yet. No further word either, that I am aware of.

    I also have 32-bit machines. They are not exposed to the internet and I don't run anything other than really basic, proven server apps on them. That's a good strategy for remaining safe in the interim.

    The Ubuntu devs are being forced to engage in a high-stakes game of whack-a-mole right now. I suspect that 32-bit support is not high on their priority list. You and I will just have to sit tight until they get around to it.

    Yes. Correct.

    Careful about installing forward kernels. It tends to break things. Not always, but frequently enough to need care. Of course, if you are testing, then by all means go ahead.

    No, unfortunately, you are not. You are running 32-bit Linux. Ubuntu has not patched that yet. No word on when they will either. See post #118 above.
    How would I be able test if my computer isn't vulnerable? Thanks.
    See post #97 above.
