Microsoft has rolled out a series of Patch Tuesday updates for supported versions of Windows 10 yesterday. The company has released updates for the supported versions of Windows 10 for regular consumers, including Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809), the April 2018 Update (version 1803), Fall Creators Update (version 1709), and the Creators Update (version 1703).
The changelogs for all the new updates are almost identical, although the update for version 1809, KB4480116, includes an additional fix. Most of these fixes are quite low-level and technical, however. You can find the changelog below:
- Addresses a security vulnerability in session isolation that affects PowerShell remote endpoints. By default, PowerShell remoting only works with administrator accounts, but can be configured to work with non-administrator accounts. Starting with this release, you cannot configure PowerShell remote endpoints to work with non-administrator accounts. When attempting to use a non-administrator account, the following error will appear: “New-PSSession: [computerName] Connecting to remote server localhost failed with the following error message: The WSMan service could not launch a host process to process the given request. Make sure the WSMan provider host server and proxy are properly registered. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.”
- Addresses an issue in which using esentutl /p to repair a corrupt Extensible Storage Engine (ESE) database results in a mostly empty database. The ESE database is corrupted and cannot be mounted (1809 only).
- Security updates to Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows MSXML, Windows Kernel, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Windows Wireless Networking, Microsoft JET Database Engine, Windows Linux, Windows Virtualization, and the Microsoft Scripting Engine.
The latest series of updates are available from Windows Update as per usual, so unless your administrator has some sort of restriction on updates, you should be able to get these installed from Windows Update in the Settings app.
