For you Linux systems there is a quick one liner you can see to cehck if you are patched against the recent bugs from Intel.
rpm -q --changelog kernel | egrep 'CVE-2017-5715|CVE-2017-5753|CVE-2017-5754'
So you can easily identify, if you get input back you are good, nothing comes back you need to patch
