    Posted on May 8th, 2018 at 13:24 PKCano Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    The May Security Updates have been released for all versions of Windows. Today, Windows 10 v1803 becomes officially available.

    As usual, Martin Brinkman has his amazing overview available on the ghacks site. The updates according to operating system:

    • Windows 7: 11 vulnerabilities of which 2 are rated critical, 7 important, and 1 low.
    • Windows 8.1: 11 vulnerabilities of which 2 are rated critical, 7 important, and 1 low
    • Windows 10 version 1607: 18 vulnerabilities of which 3 are rated critical, 14 important and 1 low.
    • Windows 10 version 1703: 19 vulnerabilities of which 3 are rated critical, 15 important and 1 low.
    • Windows 10 version 1709: 20 vulnerabilities of which 3 are rated critical, 16 important and 1 low.
    • Windows 10 version 1803: 16 vulnerabilities of which 3 are rated critical, 12 important and 1 low.

    Windows Server products

    • Windows Server 2008 R2: 11 vulnerabilities which 2 are rated critical, 8 important, and 1 low.
    • Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2: 11 vulnerabilities which 2 are rated critical, 8 important, and 1 low.
    • Windows Server 2016: 18 vulnerabilities of which 3 are rated critical, 14 important, and 1 low.

    Other Microsoft Products

    • Internet Explorer 11: 9 vulnerabilities, 6 critical, 3 important
    • Microsoft Edge: 18 vulnerabilities, 13 critical, 5 important

    Security Updates for Microsoft Office are available, including Office 2010, 2013 and 2016.

    There are also .NET Rollups and Security-only patches for Win7/8.1 this month.

    Unless you have a specific reason to install updates, you should wait until Susan Bradley (Patch Lady) has had time to evaluate them and/or Woody gives the DEFCON go-ahead. Patch reliability is unknown at this time.

      I stumbled upon the new 1803 update after running windows update on a clean install. Now reporting as version 17134.48. (Standalone, not on a domain)

      First thing to note. You’ll want to review all your privacy settings again. Looks like many if not all are reset and turned back on. AND now it says things like your camera and microphone are ON and now you have to click another button to change the setting. If you don’t read the dialogue you may overlook this situation. The slider bar to disable doesn’t appear on the main screen. So they’ve opened things back up again and making it a bit sneakier to notice that privacy settings are once again all open.

        Also be sure to note the new Activity History setting. I just noticed it and after checking it is also on the original 1803 release. This is not new to the cumulative patch. There is a setting on by default stating “Let Windows collect activity from this PC” which I promptly disabled. If you really want to dive into this head first you can also enable to sync all your stuff to the Microsoft cloud.

      No 1803 feature update in WUHide-Just security update for adobe and antivirus malware monthly update. No 1803.

      So does that mean I’d have to manually hide it at the end of the month on defcon 3 when I try check for updates, run wuhide, hide it, restart/shut down, check WUHide and see if it’s there before I disabled it?

      Because I can skip the month until it’s safe to install other updates and when they work the bugs out.

          I would say 1607 (soon out of support as if it matters much 🙂 ) and 1703 are better options than 1709.
          Otherwise, 1803 is just fine for those used to 1709 and its minor, never resolved bugs.

          Depends on what you’re using it for.

          I’ve been developing software with Visual Studio while immersed in my Win 10 v1709 VM lately, and it’s been hanging together pretty well I guess… I’ve noticed a few quirks… Like if I click a column heading to sort by extension in a Tortoise SVN panel it can take 30 seconds or more vs. being instantaneous on a decent OS.

          And I’ve never been able to tweak v1709 to be as lean as all prior versions…

          Generally speaking, though, v1709 could be considered workable I suppose. Given another 6 to 12 months I imagine it could be patched into being a halfway decent version.

            This is my point too. I was on 1709 until the very early stages of the 1803 pre-release. I don’t find it worse that 1709, even now after few days since the official release, with an exception which is Windows Update behaving as bad as 1607 used to be when it was released.
            I found 1709 buggy, one good example being widely reported audio issues which I experienced too. I stopped paying so much attention to the exact issues after few days, as there will soon be another change which makes everything history.
            I consider seriously staying on 1809 a bit longer starting 6 months from now, 1809 being a version common with LTSB/LTSC, desktop and server.
            With a bit of effort, Enterprise and Pro can be made to look and behave close enough to LTSB/LTSC.

      When I checked for updates I got 1803 again. So I used Wushowhide to hide it (again), but afterwards I didn’t get any other updates. Where are the updates for 1709??

        It’s not unusual for Microsoft to be a day or two late on the monthly flash update. There is a new flash update from Adobe but that would be for people running the standalone version and not the one that comes with Windows 10.

          1803 seems to have WU issues.
          I said in an earlier post that usoclient startscan was not working as expected for Windows 10.
          The detection in WSUS seems to happen for Office and possible for MSRT, but the CU KB4103721 is not seen in WSUS while it is seen and installed by scanning against Windows Update with the built-in Check for Updates or WUMT.
          There is KB4103729 – 2018-05 Security Update for Adobe Flash Player for Windows 10 Version 1803 in WSUS, but it is not detected. No update for Flash Player for 1803 detected in WU either.
          Still very early days, suitable to install only for those who want to have a bit of extra fun, or for those many more who don’t read any of the tech sites and get along with the OS as Microsoft intends it to be used, without caring about what happens under the bonnet. How many of us really understand what happens behind the scenes when iOS is getting updated?

              Yep, sure looks like 1803 is unable to communicate with WSUS. I tried resetting the windows update catalog and that didn’t fix it. I manually ran KB4103721 and after reboot it still didn’t see the flash update available on WSUS. When I pointed it to Microsoft update it then downloaded the flash update. I’ll see if I can verify this on another machine, but on my pc is no longer communicating with WSUS.  Cue the rolleyes smiley.

      I’m on 1703.  Scanning for updates today was a little amusing.  The upgrades entry I had for 1709 has been replaced with KB4103727 having the “title:”

      {{YEAR}}-{{MONTH_NUM}} Cumulative Update for {{OperatingSystem}} for {{Architecture}}-based Systems ({{KBNUM}})

      I imagine this is my upgrade to 1803, but I can’t say it’s described as such.

        Either Microsoft are purposely not patching some vulnerabilities in Win 7 and 8.1 like you said, however, this would be risky as Microsoft has been caught doing this before and would proabably lead to a lawsuit.

        Another possilibity is that Windows 10 simply has more security holes than Windows 7 and 8.1. Let’s say that for example, there are a couple of critical vulnerabilites in the Windows store, since Windows 7 doesn’t have that, it would mean that Windows 7 is safe. Windows 10 keeps getting new features all the time, which will obviously also introduce new security problems as well, while Windows 7 and 8.1 only gets more and more secure all the time.

      Windows 8.1, Group A (modified). I usually don’t see anything in my WU pipe until the morning of the 2nd Wednesday. Still checking throughout today.

      Also on Office 2013 Click-to-Run. All KB’s, non-security & security are ready for me on Patch Tuesday. Which gives me an extra week to update & lock down Office, if I need it.

I’m also seeing the Upgrade to Windows 10 version 1709 and the usual cadre of compatibility updates for upgrading to Windows 10 version 1709. That’s all. (Please excuse my many edits.

      The SMB memory leak problem that has plagued every 2018 Windows 7 updates so far, apparently has been finally fixed with the May updates KB4103712 (Security only) and KB4103718 (Rollup).

      Perhaps it is finally time to patch up Windows 7 x64, which for me is still staying at the December 2017 patch level, if no significant problems are discovered in the coming days?

      However, if problems are found later, then I will not hesitate to continue to keep to December 2017 level. There have been no problems for me so far even though I am behind “fully patched” by at least 4 months. I am more convinced than ever that missing some of these patches may not be a bad thing at all.

      Things are getting weird in .NET territory.

      Are we not getting group A and group B updates for .NET?

      I haven’t seen this before, but this month for the first time, .NET updates now come in two flavours, “Security and Quality Rollup” AND “Security Only” Non-Rollup.

      Did Microsoft announce that they are splitting out the .NET updates like this, like they had been doing for OS updates?

        Actually, it has happened before – the split into rollup and security only updates for .NET Framework. I don’t remember when, exactly, but at least once in calendar year 2017.

        Plow through this link to get both types of updates for May.

        https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/dotnet/2018/05/08/net-framework-may-2018-security-and-quality-rollup/.

        Click on the big purple font at the top (.NET Blog) and you can find similar info for previous months .NET Framework updates. (There’s a lot of useless stuff there, for me at least, so you might have a fair amount of scrolling to do.)

        BTW, it doesn’t seem to me that Group A or Group B has ever included .NET Framework updates, but I might be wrong.

      Is it me, or are those Windows updates getting worse and worse. Today was an absolute disaster in matter of lost time. First of all an Office Update started, then the ‘expected’ KB rolled in. Unfortunately, at the same time my virusscanner also started installing a software-update. And then there are the obligatory updates for apps no one ever uses. All in all that resulted in waiting 45 minutes before my HD calmed down finally. After that I had to restart for the update to be installed. Which costs another 10 minutes. Very, very productive (not). Hopefully there will be no side-effects of running so many updates at once, totally out of control for the average end user. Windows 10 is not usable for professional work, that’s for sure. Right now, I can’t avoid it completely because of exactly this kind of work. But I hope one day soon I can get rid of it forever. :-/

      Settings Feature Updates=365, Quality Updates=0, no pause, GP Auto Update=Enabled,2 (notify download/install). I had to hit the “Download” button initiate the install.

      I initially got a Stop Error 0x800705b9 (NetID.sys) – forgot to take it off metered connections. No problem after that.

      More problems have been reported after this round of Tuesdays updates which is now becoming a very regular occurrence.

      Again, after much Googling and removing updates one by one, we finally came to the conclusion that two more Microsoft updates were also causing us problems.

      Offending Updates
      KB4103727 – Some non-English platforms may display the following string in English instead of the localized language: ”Reading scheduled jobs from file is not supported in this language mode.” This error appears when you try to read the scheduled jobs you’ve created and Device Guard is enabled.

      KB4103718 – A stop error occurs on computers that don’t support Streaming Single Instructions Multiple Data (SIMD) Extensions 2 (SSE2).

      Do a bit of basic searching on the internet and you will find a load of people complaining about these two updates.

      KB4103718 – A stop error occurs on computers that don’t support Streaming Single Instructions Multiple Data (SIMD) Extensions 2 (SSE2).

      How do we tell if our computers support that?

      @seff, if your PC’s CPU support SSE2, there will be no error.

        Precisely, which is why I asked how we establish that. I have no clue what SSE2 is, let alone whether either of my computers supports it.

        This is on the basis that I’d rather know whether I’m affected before I install the update rather than after I’ve installed it and either got the error or not!

            I downloaded Speccy. My PC’s CPU supports SSE2.

          @seff: any CPU from Intel Pentium 4, AMD Athlon 64 or later has SSE2 support.

          Intel Pentium 3s, AMD Athlon XPs (K7 Semprons) and older do not have SSE2.
          Those using Win7 on these ancient CPUs like Pentium 3 or Athlon XP should avoid installing any 2018 cumulative update as none of them work on non-SSE2 processors.

      Listed file hashes for the IE update seem wrong. For the Win 7 x86 one at least, file downloaded from catalog is named ie11-windows6.1-kb4103768-x86_01e53038bb 110a8239b06799aa162881f39382aa.msu with the correct SHA1 hash deducted from name (01 e5 30 38 bb 11 0a 82 39 b0 67 99 aa 16 28 81 f3 93 82 aa) and SHA256 hash of 99 94 37 0f 09 57 22 71 71 84 a5 35 bf c3 a2 ab 4c 13 f9 1e 90 2a a8 bc 56 ee 3b 4c 62 88 81 f3 while those listed at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4103768/cumulative-security-update-for-internet-explorer are nothing like that, the Win 7 x86 one being 8D6376A0B99BFB2444F77515D0451F30638C345F for SHA1 and 74EC32CF3BC5193B6155B3E186442D23F36B1C74DCCAFC85E238D9FFF8E71DA2 for SHA256. So what’s up there?

      Hello everybody,

      Windows 10 home user here on 1803, of which I got via windows update last week. All is well.

      Yesterday when I ran windows update, I got the cumulative update to build 17134.48, and MSRT. Again, everything worked, computer re-booted and all seems to be fine.

      Something strange though appeared on the windows update screen before it prompted me to restart the computer. A Red message saying “Some Settings are Managed by Your Organization.” Errrrr….What organization? I thought you only see such a message if you are on Enterprise, Education, or are an insider?

      I am going to assume that this was some glitch. Ah glitches…..The joys of Win 10.

      After a bit of Googling this issue, it seems this has happened to other Win 10 home users. However, I could not find any good answers, just a bunch of gobbledygook….

      Anybody have ideas about this? (a non-techie here)…..

      Thanks!!

        I saw this yesterday as well after a clean install of 1803 pro and running windows update. The machine was not on a domain yet the message “managed by your organization” was showing. I was scratching my head on that as well.

        I have found “managed by your organization” to be the case if the default Group Policy settings have been changed from the default. It’s not just when you make GP settings changes directly. For example, check in WU if setting defer Feature= 365 and defer Quality = 30 changes to that message (as opposed to 0 and 0 default settings). Changing some of the GUI settings makes changes in GP and the Registry.

      I use Windows 7 on my home PC.  As of today, 5/9/18, I have not received the updates for Patch Tuesday.  Does anyone know why?  This seems unusual.

        The only thing I can suggest is that you check your Windows Update settings and ensure they are not set to “Never check for updates”, or do a manual check for updates. However, there’s no need to do anything along those lines until the DefCon rating has been raised to at least 3 and you actually want or need to install the monthly updates.

      Anyone know if the CVE-2018-8174 is patched here, or “vulnerability resides in the VBScript Engine”?

      And if this (8174) only is affected on those who have MS Office programs installed, I mean my Firefox opens .pdf documents and docs.google.com pages.
