BetaNews: Intel tells customers to stop installing Meltdown/Spectre patches due to ‘unpredictable’ reboot issues

BetaNews: Intel tells customers to stop installing Meltdown/Spectre patches due to ‘unpredictable’ reboot issues. “The fallout from the Meltdown and Spectre bugs continues to plague Intel. The company has been hit with lawsuits, users complained about performance drops, and some users found that their computers were rendered unbootable. For people with Broadwell and Haswell chips, there was a problem with random reboots, and as a result of this — some two weeks down the line — Intel is now advising people to stop installing its patches.”
