Microsoft Launches March 2018 Windows Security Update

Postado Março 15, 2018

Also expected is the long-awaited Timeline feature, scrapped from the Fall Creators Update.

Alongside releasing the new Windows 10 Insider Preview Build earlier this month, Microsoft announced the development of Windows ML that comes as a dedicated artificial intelligence (AI) platform - specifically designed for Windows machines.

As was the case in the last build, Microsoft says there are still no known issues to be aware of aside from some Windows Mixed Reality issues.

We fixed an issue resulting in the Amharic keyboard not working in Win32 apps.

We fixed an issue where post-install at the first user-prompted reboot or shutdown, a small number of devices experienced a scenario wherein the OS fails to load properly and might have entered a reboot loop state.

Updates legacy Document Mode cell visibility in Internet Explorer. This will enable users to pick up where they left off on completely different devices, as well as view a list of notifications and activities across all their Windows use. This might prevent the AD FS service from starting.

Addresses issue where an AD FS server issue causes the WID AD FS database to become unusable after a restart.

Addresses issue where, after installing KB4090913, the Mixed Reality Portal may fail to initialize. This results in an "SXXXXXXX-X" error or a "We couldn't download the Windows Mixed Reality Software" message may appear after the software is successfully downloaded.

John Cable, director of program management for Windows Servicing and Delivery at Microsoft said Microsoft is now removing the check for AV compatibility, following work with AV vendors to ensure "broad" compatibility with Windows security updates.

In addition, the update will also take care of antivirus compatibility check that had blocked previous security updates on Windows 10. "We recommend customers check with their AV provider on compatibility of their installed AV software product".

Security updates to Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Microsoft Windows Search component, Windows Desktop Bridge, Microsoft Graphics component, Windows Kernel, Windows Shell, Windows MSXML, Windows Datacenter Networking, Windows Installer, and Windows Hyper-V. Older versions supported versions of Windows will also see updates, and you can learn more by going to Microsoft's Version Support page and looking up the current version you're running.
