Microsoft has released the Patch Tuesday update KB4598242 for Windows 10 Versions 20H2 and 2004. The update KB4598242 with Build 19042.746/19041.746 brings security improvements while using external devices and performing basic operations.
Check the highlights and full changelog below.
- Updates to improve security when using external devices, such as game controllers, printers, and web cameras.
- Updates to improve security when Windows performs basic operations.
All improvements and fixes:
This security update includes quality improvements. Key changes include:
- Addresses a security vulnerability issue with HTTPS-based intranet servers. After installing this update, HTTPS-based intranet servers cannot, by default, use a user proxy to detect updates. Scans using these servers will fail if you have not configured a system proxy on the clients. If you must use a user proxy, you must configure the behavior using the policy “Allow user proxy to be used as a fallback if detection using system proxy fails.” To ensure the highest levels of security, also use Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) Transport Layer Security (TLS) certificate pinning on all devices. This change does not affect customers who are using HTTP WSUS servers. For more information, see Changes to scans, improved security for Windows devices.
- Addresses a security bypass vulnerability that exists in the way the Printer Remote Procedure Call (RPC) binding handles authentication for the remote Winspool interface. For more information, see KB4599464.
- Security updates to Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Media, Windows Fundamentals, Windows Kernel, Windows Cryptography, Windows Virtualization, Windows Peripherals, and Windows Hybrid Storage Services.
