Meltdown/Spectre Tracker that works for all Windows versions? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone know of a vbscript that exists for Meltdown/Spectre tracking similar to the powershell one? 


    Need to be able to track specifically if the system has hardware support enabled for Spectre v2 mitigation like the powershell script does. 

    I see the powershell script uses the NtQuerySystemInformation function to track this, but I don't believe its possible to call with vbscript. 

    Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!

  • No.  The issues needed to acquire the information are only available in PwoerShell or a compiled program.  It requires access to th system APIs in NTDLL.  This is not available to VBScript.
