What you need to know

  • Windows 10 build 18362.10022 is now available for Slow ring Insiders.
  • This update adds security fixes that rolled out in as part of a recent cumulative update for the May 2019 Update.
  • Slow ring Insiders can download this new build via Windows update now.

Microsoft has released a new Windows 10 19H2 build for Slow ring Insiders today, but there aren't any new features to check out. Instead, this build focuses on delivering security updates that were a part of a recent cumulative update for the Windows 10 May 2019 Update.

Specifically, Microsoft says, this build brings the fixes from KB4515384 (opens in new tab), which arrived for May 2019 Update users on September 10. Here's a recap:

  • Provides protections against a new subclass of speculative execution side-channel vulnerabilities, known as Microarchitectural Data Sampling, for 32-Bit (x86) versions of Windows (CVE-2019-11091, CVE-2018-12126, CVE-2018-12127, CVE-2018-12130). Use the registry settings as described in the Windows Client and Windows Server articles. (These registry settings are enabled by default for Windows Client OS editions and Windows Server OS editions.)
  • Addresses an issue that causes high CPU usage from SearchUI.exe for a small number of users. This issue only occurs on devices that have disabled searching the web using Windows Desktop Search.
  • Security updates to Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Input and Composition, Windows Media, Windows Fundamentals, Windows Authentication, Windows Cryptography, Windows Datacenter Networking, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Windows Wireless Networking, the Microsoft JET Database Engine, Windows Kernel, Windows Virtualization, and Windows Server.

Microsoft is gradually inching closer to a full release for the 19H2 update. The update, which will carry version number 1909, is already in testing with the Release Preview ring and is largely expected to arrive in its finalized form within the coming weeks. Microsoft, however, could alter its timeline for release if it runs into any showstopping bugs.

If you're enrolled in the Windows Insider Slow ring, you can download Windows 10 build 18362.10022 now.
