Debian has packaged this script for checking your vunerabilities, so we now have it in the main repo.

Simple install and run instructions:

It means you should update to a newer antiX 4.15.5, MX 4.15.4, or Liquorix 4.15 kernel if you need Spectre v_2 hardening. The first hardware part means we are all still waiting for Intel to release firmware to fix the problems without screwing up the stability of our machines.

¿With which do you recommend starting the machine?
$ sudo dpkg --get-selections | grep linux-image
[sudo] password for gerson:
linux-image-4.14.0-3-amd64 install
linux-image-4.15.0-5.1-liquorix-amd64 install

We've rolled the latest 0.40 from stretch-backports in the main MX 17 and 15/16 repos to make it more convenient to install. We also updated the package description to accurately reflect its current capabilities.

delete text in-btween hardware check to summary (bottom last few line) and last couple text lines.
look at the example above then u can see vulnerabilities clearly.

Yes, just look at the lines that begin with "STATUS". You don't have any vunerabilites that it currently checks.
