I have model number SVF14325CXB (Sony VAIO Fit) and am concerned about the Meltdown and Spectre security issues. I don't see any updates to address these issues at https://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-home.pl?mdl=SVF14325CXB

Sony has sold the computer division in 2015. They may not deliver BIOS updates anymore...
There are 3 described vulnerabilities by systems with Intel CPUs that need to be closed:
Microsoft has released a PowerShell script that will allow you to check your system for these vulnerabilities.
First you should install all Windows security patches. After that you should install the PowerShell Script (PS version 5.1 / WMF5.1 is necessary) Then test you System. In 99% of all the result looks like this: http://archive.is/rTjBi
The green lines comes through the Windows update. The other red lines can only be "greened" by CPU microcode and an adapted BIOS. I have found a way to flash the microcode but apparently thats not enough. Only on line more is now green: http://archive.is/oHNC1
I'm afraid if SONY does not provide BIOSes, only a BIOS hack can help.

Ran the Microsoft PowerSHell. Excepting the last line I got the same result :
KVAShadowPcidEnabled : False
There is a similar script at
Nothing new on this post.
It is I suppose unlikely that Sony will issue a bios patch for this 2011 machine.
