Microsoft has released this month's Windows 10 cumulative updates for several versions of the operating system. KB4565351 (OS Builds 18362.1016 and 18363.1016) is live for Windows 10 November 2019 and May 2019 Update. This release brings the following fixes and security updates:

- Security updates to the Microsoft Scripting Engine, Internet Explorer, Windows Graphics, Windows Input and Composition, Windows Media, Windows Shell, the Windows Wallet Service, Microsoft Edge Legacy, Windows Cloud Infrastructure, Windows Authentication, Windows AI Platform, Windows Fundamentals, Windows Kernel, Windows Update Stack, Windows File Server and Clustering, Windows Hybrid Storage Services, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, and the Microsoft JET Database Engine.
The update is available through Windows Update and manually through the Microsoft Update Catalog.
Other Windows 10 versions have also received August 2020 Patch Tuesday updates
Microsoft has also released KB4565349 (Build 17763.1397) for version 1809, KB4571709 (Build 17134.1667) for Windows 10 version 1803, KB4571741 (Build 16299.2045) for version 1709, KB4571689 (Build 15063.2467) for version 1703, and KB4571692 (Build 10240.18666) for the original version of Windows 10.
