Notes on Microsoft Updates 2018-01 (Meltdown and Specter) wrote:On the 3rd and 08th of January 2018 Microsoft has released updates for the Windows operating systems to close the vulnerabilities, which are grouped under the name Meltdown and Specter.
There are compatibility issues with these updates, see e.g. the notes in the Windows Server 2012 R2 Update
(https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/hel ... -kb4056895).
According to current knowledge, these compatibility problems also affect SIMATIC products.
For this reason, we recommend that you do not install these security updates.

As new information becomes available, this post will be updated.
