John Cable (Director of Program Management for Windows Servicing and Delivery) announced some changes to Windows security updates today; namely, the removal of the AV compatibility check for Windows 10 devices (so that more of your devices are covered by Windows security updates), an expanded set of Intel microcode updates in the Microsoft Catalog, and coverage for the Meltdown vulnerability for x86 editions of Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8.1.
