It’s Patch Tuesday. Microsoft releases for security updates for versions of Windows 10

-

It’s Patch Tuesday, Microsoft releases updates for all supported versions of Windows 10, which includes version 2004, 1909, 1903, and others except version 1511. These updates contain security improvements and known issues and their workarounds.

Windows 10 users who are running the latest version 2004 will get the update KB4571756, which will upgrade the build number to 19041.508. Here is what it contains:

Highlights

  • Updates to improve security when using input devices (such as a mouse, keyboard, or pen).
  • Updates to improve security when Windows performs basic operations.
  • Updates for storing and managing files.
  • Updates to improve security when using Microsoft Office products.

Fixes and Improvements

  • Addresses an issue with a possible elevation of privilege in windowmanagement.dll
  • Addresses a security vulnerability issue with user proxies and HTTP-based intranet servers. After installing this update, HTTP-based intranet servers cannot leverage a user proxy by default to detect updates. Scans using these servers will fail if the clients do not have a configured system proxy. If you must leverage a user proxy, you must configure the behavior using the Windows Update policy “Allow user proxy to be used as a fallback if detection using system proxy fails.” This change does not affect customers who secure their Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) servers with the Transport Layer Security (TLS) or Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocols.
  • Security updates to Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows Input and Composition, Windows Media, Windows Shell, Windows Cloud Infrastructure, Windows Fundamentals, Windows Management, Windows Kernel, Windows Virtualization, Windows Storage and Filesystems, the Microsoft Scripting Engine, and the Microsoft JET Database Engine.

Similarly, the versions 1909 and 1903 are getting KB4574727 update, which brings their build number to 18363.1082 and 18362.1082, respectively.

Highlights

  • Updates to improve security when Windows performs basic operations.
  • Updates to improve security when using input devices (such as a mouse, keyboard, or pen).
  • Updates to improve security when using Microsoft Office products.
