Checking entire GREEN network

Post by barczs » April 9th, 2019, 12:22 pm

Just successfully updated to Core 129 and installed the spectre-meltdown-checker addon as well.
Checking the equipment IPFire itself installed on works fine. I'd like to figure out whether it is possible checking the vulnerabilities of another workstation in green network in the way:

Code: Select all

spectre-meltdown-checker {IP-address}
Anybody an idea?
THX, barczs

This addon is not able to test other machines via network.

To check if a cpu is affected by meltdown or spectre you need run a local process as root to gather all needed informations like running microcode version etc.
