Microsoft Patch Tuesday: Windows 10 cumulative builds changelogs
Along with the worldwide rollout, Microsoft has also released a new cumulative update (KB4015583) to those already on the Windows 10 Creators Update. Today's Creators Update cumulative build bumps the build number from 10563.14 to 10563.138, fixing minor bugs and also bringing security patches to the operating system. Along with other security issues, today's Creators Update cumulative release also fixes the Office zero-day bug that was widely reported over the weekend for being exploited by attackers.
Here's the changelog of Windows 10 Creators Update cumulative build 15063.138 (KB4015583):
- Addressed issues with updated time zone information.
- Security updates to Scripting Engine, libjpeg image-processing library, Hyper-V, Windows kernel-mode drivers, Adobe Type Manager Font Driver, Internet Explorer, Graphics Component, Active Directory Federation Services, .NET Framework, Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, Microsoft Edge and Windows OLE.
If you are on Windows 10 Anniversary Update, you will be receiving 14393.1066 and 14393.1083. Here's what's fixed:
