      Could it possibly be that they held up the release of this patch to fix a known issue?……Nahย  ๐Ÿ™‚

      I don’t want to cosplay the usual Chicken Littles & scream “THE SKY IS FALLING!”… but is it? If these patches were just accidentally overlooked & are basically the same fix in all other Windows versions, us Win8.1 folk could wait to install it with the rest of this month’s patches. Right? Right?! However, if the hunch of @Mr._Natural is right & this fixes a known issue that should be addressed quickly… should we apply it ASAP? & by “apply”, I Only mean KB4578013 & Nothing Else! What up, Boss?!

      Bought a refurbished Windows 10 64-bit, currently updated to 22H2. Have broke the AC adapter cord going to the 8.1 machine, but before that, coaxed it into charging. Need to buy new adapter if wish to continue using it.

        Win8.1 just didn’t get it included with the monthly patches. So they are being released later.
        If you are holding off on the monthly patches (that contain these fixes for all the other versions) then there is no real difference holding off on these for Win8.1. Right? Right!

        or maybe it is a two-fold update, 1. an update required & 2. another spanner ithrown into w8.1 like they did with w7ย  to frustrate users to w10 again …imo

      In spite of what the KB article says, I’ve seen several reports that this patch DOES require a reboot.

        It update more than 6 components and reinstall at least two product policy licenses
        it’s very normal to require reboot

        KB articles are not accurate all the time ๐Ÿ™‚

      It’s Redmond at it’s best. They have released a patch for a vulnerability, that should have been patched already on August 11, 2018. Their KB article about Update KB4578013 is simply a mess. Wrong as h*** and don’t reveal, why they need to patch again.

      Their Windows Message Center says ‘install immediately’ – but the CVE article says ‘2 – Exploitation Less Likely’.

      BTW: I’ve send @Windows Update a tweet to inform them to update that contradictious information they are publishing.
