In response to the recent Intel Security Advisory regarding Software/Side Channel Analysis, Kernel Memory Leak:

Intel has observed rare incidences of system reboots and other unpredictable system behavior after updating to microcode mitigating CVE-2017-5715 a.k.a. Spectre.
We have identified the root cause and made good progress in developing a solution to address it.
We have removed any BIOS posted recently that included the first microcode update and will post new BIOS updates as soon as they are ready.
If you have already updated BIOS with the first microcode update and you experience reboots or unstable system behavior, you can downgrade your BIOS to the previous version.
We will provide an update on this issue by February 15, 2018.
