With only two more months to go before the end of 2020, Microsoft carries on releasing its monthly updates, and today is the time for the November Patch Tuesday updates.
As always, the Patch Tuesday updates affect all versions of Windows 10, from the oldest (Windows 10 v1507) to the newest (Windows v2009).
Speaking of which, this is the first round of Patch Tuesday updates since the release of the October Update, and although it went through a rocky start, updates continued to roll to make it better, and more accessible for everyone.
This what the November Patch Tuesday updates bring
Users can get a good idea regarding what to expect during the live release of the next cumulative updates by looking back at the past developments, as there is a high chance many of them will be applied later in live versions.
In the case of this month’s updates, here are the changes that were most noticeable:
- KB4586830 improves Group Policy and fixes many Windows tools
- You may lose system certificates after Patch Tuesday updates
If you haven’t installed it yet, but would like to, simply follow this detailed guide to install it immediately.
Another center of focus is this month’s CVE report since last month was the first time in 2020 when the number of detected CVEs stopped ascending, although the total number of CVE detected in 2020 is well above that of 2019.
Unfortunately, the number rose again, this month reaching 146 CVEs.
Bottom line is that these updates are important, and if you value your PC’s safety, you’d do well to update as soon as possible.
If you aren’t a fan of updating your OS and have decided to pause your Windows Update feature, you should probably turn it on back right now.
This is for your PC’s protection, and it can prevent cyberattacks that have become common during Exploit Wednesday and Uninstall Thursday.
