  • Undocumented Win10 patch KB 3211320 likely a servicing stack update

    But Microsoft gives two conflicting descriptions – and no definitive documentation – for the Win10 Anniversary Update patch rolled out silently last night.

    Yes, Gildna, new KB 3211320 is both a floor wax and a dessert topping!

    Microsoft’s MS17-001 security bulletin, clearly in error, has spawned a wave of fake news, saying that KB 3211320 is a security patch for Edge. Not true. Sad.

    UPDATE: Microsoft finally published the KB article for 3211320, but the article for MS17-001 still says that 3211320 is a floor wax. Er, a critical browser security patch for Edge.
