We're only a week out from Patch Tuesday, but Microsoft is shipping out another batch of cumulative updates for Windows 10 PCs. In all, updates are available for PCs on the Fall Creators Update, Creators Update, and Anniversary Update. Each contains a batch of fixes for lingering issues in each release.
For Windows 10 users on the Fall Creators Update, which make up the majority of Windows 10 users, the update pushes the build number up to 16299.334 with KB4089848. Here's a look at what's new:
- Addresses issue with a GDI handle leak in the Windows Ribbon control.
- Addresses issue where users can't select OK after entering credentials in command line on Windows Server version 1709.
- Addresses issues where Bluetooth devices fail to receive data after a restart.
- Addresses issue where, during BitLocker decryption or encryption of a drive, files protected with the Encrypting File System (EFS) may become corrupted.
- Addresses issue where the server may occasionally encounter an error during file transfer. The error is "Stop D1 in tcpip!TcpSegmentTcbSend".
- Addresses issue where an iSCSI RESET might trigger a cluster failover.
- Addresses issue in MPIO where pass-through SCSI requests might lead to a stop error if the disk is pending removal.
- Addresses issue where processing of group policies may fail, and policies may be removed as a result. This occurs if the length of the Windows Defender Firewall policy rule exceeds 260 characters.
- Addresses issue caused by a new privilege in Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 version 1709 named "Obtain an impersonation token for another user in the same session". When applied using Group Policy to those computers, gpresult /h fails to generate reporting data for any setting configured by the Security Configuration Engine (SCE) extension. The error message is "Requested value 'SeDelegateSessionUserImpersonatePrivilege' was not found". The Group Policy Management Console fails to show the privilege in the Settings tab for a GPO where the setting has been configured.
- Addresses issue where errors may occur when accessing WebDAV files or folders on a SharePoint site if the file or folder name contains multibyte characters.
