KB5009610 and KB5009624 security fixes

The latest Microsoft Patch Tuesday brings new security updates for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 to address several problems within the system

It’s really necessary to realize the importance of security updates because they usually fix serious issues that can affect the OS integrity.

Moreover, it’s crucial to get these patches if you still have Windows 7 which is out of support, and Windows 8.1 which is in its extended support period.

The new KB5009610 and KB5009624 fix a Windows Server issue

Microsoft had issued the KB5009610 patch for Windows 7 and KB5009624 for Windows 8.1 that include improvements and fixes.

According to the Microsoft release, the patch addresses a Windows Server issue in which Active Directory attributes are not written correctly during a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) modify operation with multiple specific attribute changes.

What are the known issues of KB5009610 and KB5009624?

Unfortunately, the new KB also comes with a possible issue. After restarting your device, you may receive the error Failure to configure Windows updates. Reverting Changes. Do not turn off your computer.

Also, the update might show as Failed in Update History that will probably cause a bit of frustration.

However, this will happen only if you are installing this update on a device that is running an edition that is not supported for ESU, or if you don’t have an ESU MAK add-on key installed and activated.

If you encounter the issue, verify you have applied all prerequisites and that your key is activated.

Another problem you may encounter is that certain operations, such as renaming files or folders that are on a Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) may fail with the error, STATUS_BAD_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL (0xC00000A5).

According to Microsoft, this happens when you perform the operation on a CSV owner node from a process without administrator privilege.

To fix this, perform the operation from a process using admin privilege, or from a node that doesn’t have CSV ownership.

The Redmond giant recommends installing the latest servicing stack update (SSU) before getting the latest KB patches.

Don’t worry because the latest SSU (KB5001403) will be in the Windows Updates section waiting to be installed.

However, if you can’t find it, you can also download it manually from the Microsoft Update Catalog.
