It's for servers/secure enterprise workstations. For home users any hacks are already mitigated in browsers. I'd say it's safe to disable these patches with InSpectre if you're not dealing with classified documents or something.

It is advised to turn JavaScript off by default (or install no-Script), allow it only on trusted sites and run an ad-blocker to avoid the bulk of malicious ads.

Saw this in another forum.

At this point they should not use any of the affected even if they are free.

I would appreciate it if the banks I deal with were mitigated or went with Epyc though. Seems like most of my information is getting out there due to other guys.

everyone I know runs inspectre on their intel gaming systems, though most of us don't do anything but game/read on them. a different system is used for work and bills.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
