    I am running Ubuntu Mate 17.10 and ran process twice and still get vulnerable in ‘ Spectre Variant 1 and 2 ‘ , shows exactly what you have in example, is this still in the process of being fixed ? , or am I missing something .

    I am running on an Antergos (Arch Based Distro). I ran the script and 2 of the 3 sectors had vulnerabilities. I went to upgrade and pacman is saying I have nothing to upgrade. How do I resolve this?

    For the Fedora/CentOS/RHEL users I created a COPR repository so that the spectre-meltdown-checker can be installed and updated via package manager.

    You can find more information at https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/ganto/spectre-meltdown-checker. I’ll try to include this upstream in the next few days.
