KB3124263 Windows Update patches Windows 10 10586.36 to Build 10586.63

Microsoft has released a new Windows Update called KB3124263 for Windows 10 PCs, on Patch Tuesday.

The update comprises of a few security bulletins.

There are four of them, to be precise: MS16-001, MS16-005, MS16-007 and MS16-008. Here is a brief description of those.

MS16-001 patches multiple security vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer. This includes a fix for one severe issue, which could have allowed remote code execution, when the user visited a malicious web page using the browser.

MS 16-005 is also similar to the above one, since it involves a fix for a bug which may have potentially allowed arbitrary attacks, but in Windows Kernel-Mode [...]

KB3133431 Windows Update fixes the Flash Player crashes caused by the botched KB3132372 Update

KB3132372 Windows Update won’t be forgotten by Windows 10 users, at least not in the near future.

This is because the patch, which was originally intended to fix security issues in Adobe Flash Player for Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer, instead saw itself become a thorn for many a user.

The update instead caused many apps to crash, especially, when they were used to access/play some sort of Flash based content. Microsoft did warn that the update could cause a few crashes, but did not detail on how much exactly was “a few”.

As it turned out, it was quite a few, read our previous report about it to know more. While the Redmond company and [...]

KB3123303 Windows Update which will be released next Tuesday, will nag users to upgrade to Internet Explorer 11

Back in November 2015, we reported that Microsoft had begun reminding users of Windows 7, that the default browser in the operating system, Internet Explorer (versions 7, 8, 9 and 10) is reaching its end of support soon.

The Redmond Company took the announcement, as an oppurtunity to promote Microsoft Edge.

Of course to use that, one would have to upgrade to Windows 10. Anyway, the end of support for older versions of IE, is nearing, really soon, and a Windows Update will be rolled out next week to which will remind users of the same.

And when I say ask, I meant nag (it’s Microsoft we’re talking about). Microsoft has announced that it will [...]

Windows Update KB3132372 crashing your apps? Here’s how to uninstall it

Windows Update KB3132372, was released by Microsoft, about three days ago for Windows 10 computers, running n the latest build of the OS.

The update was meant to patch the recently reported critical vulnerabilities, in the infamous Adobe Flash Player plugin, which the Redmond company ships with Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Edge.

Microsoft did say that a few apps may crash after installing the update. This statement appears to be more of a casual warning, than it states the actual side-effect. Because in reality, the update is crashing more than a “few” apps. Several hundreds of reports have been posted at various forums, including [...]
