The November Patch Tuesday updates are here. The updates bring some minor improvements and bug fixes for your Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 PCs.
As usual, Microsoft pushed out one monthly rollup update alongside one security-only update for Windows 7 systems. To be more specific, KB4525235 is the monthly rollup and KB4525233 is the security update. Those who want to install the latest updates on their systems should go to System and Security >> Windows Update >> Check for updates to see them listed as available updates.
The official changelog reads:
- Provides protections against the Intel® Processor Machine Check Error vulnerability (CVE-2018-12207). Use the registry setting as described in the Guidance KB article. (This registry setting is disabled by default.)
- Provides protections against the Intel® Transactional Synchronization Extensions (Intel® TSX) Transaction Asynchronous Abort vulnerability (CVE-2019-11135). Use the registry settings as described in the Windows Client and Windows Server articles. (These registry settings are enabled by default for Windows Client OS editions, but disabled by default for Windows Server OS editions.)
- Security updates to Windows Input and Composition, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows Cryptography, Windows Virtualization, Windows Kernel, Windows Datacenter Networking, and the Microsoft JET Database Engine.
KB4525235 packs an additional change, as it specifically addresses an issue that prevents a 16-bit Visual Basic 3 (VB3) application or other VB3 applications from running on Windows 7 systems.
Microsoft is not aware of any issues concerning KB4525233 or KB4525235.
