  • New, one-off cumulative updates for all Win10 versions to fix that “gov.uk” HSTS bug

    Yep, it’s Sunday.

    Looks like we have new cumulative updates for all versions of Win10 and all related versions of Server. That, combined with the Win7 and 8.1 patches released on Saturday, seems to fix all of the buggy gov.uk May patches.

    If you’re a glass-half-full kind of person, you can say that Microsoft fixed the bug it promulgated in less than a week.

    If you’re a glass-half-empty sort, you can say that it took Microsoft nearly a week to fix the bug it spread on Tuesday.

    Details in Computerworld Woody on Windows.

    Win10 Installation instructions from the KB articles:
