Finally: Microcode updates against the Spectre2 vulnerability.
From Microsoft. Not for all OS' (Win10 1709 exclusive), not for all CPUs (but for some skylake CPUs, for example for https://en.wikichip.org/wiki/intel/cores/skylake_s#Skylake_S_Processors and https://en.wikichip.org/wiki/intel/cores/skylake_h#Skylake_H_Processors )
That patch will be updated as more Microcode updates are released.

Important: it does not distribute automatically! It can be imported to WSUS!

Thank you for posting this. I saw this is ZD Net as well yesterday. The article says the update does not apply to all machines as you note above. It does not apply to my Haswell Desktop and seems not to apply to my Skylake Laptop.

Probably no one should attempt to update manually.

Depends which skylake laptop (and CPU) you are talking about. Lenovo will have offered updates for its skylake laptops already, they were quick.

Yes that could be the reason. Lenovo BIOS was out with the January out-of-band updates.
