      With three cumulative updates to essentially all versions of Windows this month, it’s been a riotous time. Still,  if you have a good sense of humor,

      I’m surprised that new health dashborad is keeping radio silence about the deferral setting issue

        If it is a new “feature” (like the vanishing Registry backup) it doesn’t belong on the health dashboard.

      From reading elsewhere, Windows 10 update fixes or deferments use manual registry changes. How do these registry changes qualify as obvious, useful, or helpful for the average computer user? Registry changes strike me as the fastest and easiest way to bork your computer. They should be used only when other alternatives have been exhausted.

      Hey Woody

      When you produce your Defcon rating change write up, please specifically address the new Windows Updater issues for each Windows 10 version – 1803, 1809, and 1903.

      You are stuck with it if you have the 1903 update installed, but should those still on 1803 and 1809 install the June update or wait it out awhile longer and retain the old Updater and Group Policy controls?

      I have version 1809. All updates deferred: 180 days or 21 days. But your info today in patch watch list gives some “Mandatory” or “Install” status.  KB 4499728 is listed as mandatory but it does not show in my update history although it is 6 weeks old. Is there a way to find this or any other update and force it without clicking “check for updates”?

        KB 4499728 is the May Servicing Stack (update for the Windows Update mechanism).
        It does not show up as a separate patch in the Settings Update History.

        In Control PanelPrograms and Features
        Click on the link “View installed updates
        You can find it by entering “View installed updates”  (without quotes) in the search box.
        If it is installed it will be listed there.

          Thank you! Yes, I found that one and one other. But cannot see another here nor in update history. Is there a way to find this or any other update and force it without clicking “check for updates”?

            The Servicing Stacks are bundled with the Cumulative Updates. You won’t see them listed in the update queue, but if you are updating through Windows Update, they will be automatically installed. They can be downloaded from the MS Catalog and manually installed, but that should not be necessary if you use WU.

      Regarding the BlueKeep vulnerability: It seems Sophos has successfully created an exploit. So maybe, it’s not really a “sky is falling” situation after all.  As you said, Woody, get patched!

      RDP BlueKeep exploit shows why you really, really need to patch

      I realize this thread is about June updates however today I received a WU for my Win 10 ver 1809 x64 system  KB4465065  date of  2019-02.  This is very odd. Prior to this KB I had received 1903 for download and install which I have just left alone.  When this update arrived today 1903 offer went away.  Perhaps it will be re-offered once I install this latest update.  Did anyone else get KB4465065 today or know anything about it?  I  already installed June’s updates with no performance issues.  It seems odd that this is Monday and MS has released this update KB for 1809.

      KB4465065 is an Intel Microcode patch. I suggest holding off on installing it. There are no known M/S exploits in the wild at this time.

      Thank you PKCano.  Might you know why  1903 offer went away when KB4465065 showed up?  Not that I am going to download and install it anytime soon but I just wonder what happened to it  and if this KB offered me is a pre-requisite for it or if it will be offered again when/if I install KB4465065.  I’m in no hurry for 1903.

        I got it and installed on 12-June-2019 for 1809 pro.
        I got and installed June 2019 updates today.

      Although Woody still has the indicator at MS-DEFCON 2 as of this writing, based upon Susan’s words in yesterday’s newsletter about the patching status of Win 7 for June’s patches, I went ahead and took the plunge.

      Well, suffice it to say that I survived, along with one of my two computers! 🙂  In other words, no issues at all either patching or afterwards!

      Patched both Office 2010 and Win7.

      Had an unchecked-by-default “Update for Office 2010”  in the “Important” updates that was released today, but didn’t install it, as it will become “checked” after next Tuesday like they always do.

      Will be patching my second computer on Thursday, as I have many obligations after work tomorrow, Wednesday, evening.

      BTW, Win7 Pro SP1 x64 “Group A” (using monthly rollups, but I decide when and whether to install them) with an Intel board (DH55HC) and chip (i5-750, the first generation)

      As I deferred quality updates for 21 days, I got this morning and installed June update for 1809 KB4503327.
      So far everything is normal and deferrals are in place as well.

      p.s Windows hasn’t created a restore point before applying June updates.
      It did create a restore point for ‘high security’ update after installing a new optical mouse.
