• Microsoft releases KB 4091290, a fix for the Win7/Server 2008R2 SCARD_E_NO_SERVICE bug

    Coming soon to Windows Update.

    KB 4091290

    This update addresses a known issue previously called out in KB4075211 where the LSM.EXE process and applications that call SCardEstablishContext or SCardReleaseContext may experience a handle leak. Once the leaked handle count reaches a certain threshold, smart card based operations fail with error with SCARD_E_NO_SERVICE

    See Susan Bradley’s explainer from yesterday.

    Looks like this is the first Windows Update release for the month. No doubt many more are to follow.
