If you want to receive future security patches on your Windows 7 machines, you really need to install KB4474419, KB4490628, and KB4484071 before you hit the update button.

All of these updates support SHA-2 and they have been released to the users in March 2019 Patch Tuesday updates. 

Who should install KB4474419, KB4490628, and KB4484071?

The roll out is targeting the users of Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 and Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and encourages them to install the three updates.

The Redmond giant recommends users to install the above-mentioned updates before the deadline ends on July 16, 2019.

Let’s have a look at each of them in detail.

1. KB4474419

Those users who currently have Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 will receive SHA-2 code sign support by installing KB4474419.

2. KB4490628

Secondly, you can resolve the hash algorithm issue by installing KB4490628 servicing stack update. You will get SHA-2 signed Windows Updates on your system.

3. KB4484071

Finally, addresses the issues that are faced by the users with Windows Server Update Services 3.0 Service Pack 2 (WSUS).

Microsoft has made it clear that WSUS update tasks cant be performed by the WSUS 3.0 SP2 generally known as WSUS 3.2 without installing the SHA-2 update. 

The updates are scheduled to be released in July 2019. If you are still using WSUS 3.0 SP2, this update is critical for you.

Microsoft recommends its users to update to the latest version 10.0 of WSUS. 

How to download the updates?

All of the Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 machines have received all of these updates via Windows Update as a part of the Patch Tuesday cycle this month.

Keep in mind that you will not be able to receive the other security fixes that will be rolled out in July if you block these automatic updates

As we have already reported Microsoft has already announced to retire Windows 7 in January 2020. Microsoft plans to offer Extended Security Updates to the users who plan to use Windows 7 on a per device basis.

If you are one of those users who has yet not decided to upgrade to Windows 10 grab these updates asap to secure your OS.
