    McAfee & support for January 2018 Security patches

    jlph

      Hi, I've not been able to find any official stance from McAfee on it's compatibility with the January 2018 MS patches to mitigate Meltdown & Spectre.

       

      https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4072699/important-information-regarding -the-windows-security-updates-released

       

      "The compatibility issue is caused when anti-virus applications make unsupported calls into Windows kernel memory. These calls may cause stop errors (also known as blue screen errors) that make the device unable to boot. To help prevent stop errors caused by incompatible anti-virus applications, Microsoft is only offering the Windows security updates released on January 3, 2018 to devices running anti-virus software from partners who have confirmed their software is compatible with the January 2018 Windows operating system security update."

       

      Is McAfee compatible and does it set the required registry key to enable the patch to apply?

       

      Thanks in advance.
