KB4550922 security updates for 13 software products

In the new April Patch Tuesday, Microsoft includes major security updates for a lot of software products.

The new KB4549951 includes security updates for the Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows Kernel, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Microsoft Graphics Component and Windows Media.

Other security updated software includes Windows Shell, Windows Management, Windows Cloud Infrastructure, Windows Fundamentals, Windows Core Networking, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Windows Update Stack, and the Microsoft JET Database Engine.

The new KB4550922 patch also presents a problem affecting 1507, 1703, 1709 and 1803, versions of Windows 10.

The devices on a domain might be unable to install apps published using a Group Policy Object (GPO). However, Microsoft specifies that this issue only affects app installations that use .msi files.

That means that this issue doesn’t affect any other installation methods, such as the ones from the Microsoft Store as they are not installed with .msi files.

Patch Tuesday, as its name suggests, happens only on a Tuesday. To be more precise, on the second Tuesday of the month.
  • Is there a Patch Tuesday today?
If it’s the second Tuesday of the month, then yes, it is Patch Tuesday, the unofficial name of the Microsoft updates and patches release day.
  • Is Patch Tuesday still a thing?
As long as there are issues to be fixed and vulnerabilities to cover in all Microsoft software products, there will probably still be a Patch Tuesday. Of course, if, for any reason, Microsoft decides to change the day, it will probably also change its unofficial name.
