Microsoft’s Second Cumulative Update for Windows 10 (KB3081436)

windows 10 Update1Last week Microsoft delivered its first cumulative update for Windows 10 (KB3081424) that addressed non-security related issues to help improve stability and the overall performance of Windows 10.

Microsoft today delivers a second cumulative update (KB3081436) that the company says will improve functionality and resolve security issues. Here’s a look at how Microsoft describes this most recent update:

The security update for Windows 10 that is dated August 11, 2015, includes improvements to improve the functionality of Windows 10 and resolves the following vulnerabilities in Windows:

3086251 MS15-092: Vulnerabilities in the .NET Framework could allow elevation of privilege: August 11, 2015

3084525 MS15-091: Cumulative security update for Microsoft Edge: August 11, 2015

Windows 10 updates are cumulative. Therefore, this package contains all previously released fixes. (See KB 3081424.) If you have previous updates installed, only the new fixes that are contained in this package will be downloaded and installed to your computer.

Of course this update will be delivered and installed automatically, but if you want to manually update now, head to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update to download it. A restart is required to complete the updating process.

KB3081436

You can read about everything included in this update on this Microsoft Support page.

Of course this is the Microsoft’s regular “Patch Tuesday” so if you’re running earlier versions of Windows or Windows Server, make sure to check Windows Update for patches and fixes for those operating systems, too.

One Response to Microsoft’s Second Cumulative Update for Windows 10 (KB3081436)

    I originally had NO problem with 424, but now that 436 has come out, I started suffering the update reboot loop. I was able to de-install the updates that came out on 11 Aug but still suffering update reboot loop and 424 does NOT de-install. Since this system is Intel video, I have to assume that the so-called Nvidea issue is not the culprit in this system case at least. De-installation of Win 10 seems to be my only recourse. Working from safe mode now. Probably need a subject line for comments.
