Surface Laptop, Pro 4 Get Massive Sets of Firmware Updates

Did Microsoft Just Ruin Its October Surface Announcement?

Microsoft updated its Surface Laptop and Surface Pro 4 this week to improve to system stability and reliability, and to resolve potential security vulnerabilities.

“On July 25th we released updates for Surface Pro 4 and Surface Laptop running Windows 10 Fall Creators Update version 1709 or greater to Windows Update,” Microsoft’s Scott McArthur wrote in separate posts for each to the Surface Blog for IT Pros.

The security vulnerabilities are described in two Microsoft security advisories, ADV180012 and ADV180013, and are related to the Spectre and Meltdown exploits.

The list of updates for each is massive, and they appear to be identical or at least nearly so.
