We have updated the
Speculative Execution Side-Channel Vulnerabilities Configuration Baseline
. The updated baseline now includes support for verifying the protections for
(L1 Terminal Fault) in addition to the previously supported CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2017-5754 and CVE-2018-3639.
This Compliance Settings configuration baseline is used to confirm whether a system has enabled the mitigations needed to protect against the speculative-execution side-channel vulnerabilities as described in the Microsoft Security Advisories
. It is based on the functionality in the PowerShell module
. It requires at least PowerShell 3.0.
