spectre-meltdown-checker-0.44-lp152.2.3.1 RPM for x86_64

From OpenSuSE Leap 15.2 updates for x86_64

Name: spectre-meltdown-checker Distribution: openSUSE Leap 15.2
Version: 0.44 Vendor: openSUSE
Release: lp152.2.3.1 Build date: Fri Aug 27 18:11:28 2021
Group: Productivity/Security Build host: lamb20
Size: 266382 Source RPM: spectre-meltdown-checker-0.44-lp152.2.3.1.src.rpm
Summary: Spectre & Meltdown Vulnerability Checker
A shell script to tell if your Linux installation is vulnerable
against the three "speculative execution" CVEs that were made public
in early 2018.

Without options, the script inspects the currently running kernel.
Alternatively, a kernel image can be specify on the command line to
analyze a non-running kernel.

The script tries to detect mitigations, including backported
non-vanilla patches, regardless of the advertised kernel version
