Bitdefender Free Antivirus not compatible with Windows 7 Update against Meltdown and Spectre?


Using Windows 7 with Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition 1.09.69 - last update time 10 minutes ago, the Windows security updates released on January 3, 2018 is not offered to me.

This Update is very important as it addresses the "Meltdown" and "Spectre" issues.


According to this article

"Customers will not receive these security updates and will not be protected from security vulnerabilities unless their anti-virus software vendor sets the following registry key: ..." (see the link).

However I verified with regedit, that my registry does not contain the mentioned key necessary to download and install the updates.


So is Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition incompatible? Will there be a solution?

Thank you.
