    I dont think this info at the end of the article is accurate.

    01/05/18: Intel has released a Detection and Mitigation Tool to assist with detection and mitigation of these security vulnerabilities, available in Intel's Download Center.  

    This link above is for a tool that detects for SA-00075 which was released back in September of 2017 .  The Intel tracking for the Meltdown exploit is SA-00088 and details can be found here https://security-center.intel.com/advisory.aspx?intelid=INTEL-SA-00088&languageid=en-fr

    Stephen - Thank you for the feedback! You are correct - I have removed the reference to the tool to eliminate confusion. Thank you also for sharing another resource for additional information about these exploits!
