  • Where we stand with the Cortana/Search redlining bug

    We’re stuck between a rock and a very hard place.

    On the one hand, if you’re running Win10 1903 — you may have been pushed — you really need to get the first August cumulative update installed to guard against DejaBlue (which hasn’t been exploited yet).

    On the other hand, there are so many bugs in the first August cumulative update (VB/VBA/VBScript, Windows Sandbox, PXE, MIT Kerberos) that you really should get the second August cumulative update.

    On the third hand, if you install the second August cumulative update, your machine may start redlining.

    Tell me again how Win10 1903 is ready for prime time?
