Hi all,

You migth have come across with headlines like Meltdown and Spectre affect severely to devices with Intel, AMD or ARM worldwide. Microsoft will send a patch to fix the vulnerability, but today an article pops out: (see here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4072699/important-information-regarding-the-windows-security-updates-released) Microsoft won't send the patch to computers with antivirus programs that may cause a Blue Screen of Death as the detect the update as a suspicious Kernel request. Is Avast compatible with the patch? Will the Avast team update the program or take any action in order to face this huge issue?

Thanks in advance
