New recommendation

Intel has advised OEMs, cloud service providers, system manufacturers and software vendors to stop deploying the current versions of its patches until Intel develops a solution. This to avoid results in spontaneous reboots and other unpredictable system behaviours.

End-users should continue to apply updates recommended by their system and operating system providers.
