systems to my knowledge can.

There's no reason to believe netburst systems are not affected by any of the cpu issues identified in the past few years, but they are obsolete and unsupported so nobody is making official statements about them. These systems also lack a number of security features present in modern CPUs; picking an ancient chip for "security reasons" is likely misguided. Also, in the context of this thread, note that the most recent Core 2 processor was released in 2010.
