Microsoft Releases their New Cumulative Windows 10
The security updates released on 12th January 2021 have come with good quality improvements. The improvements were:
- It will easily address the security vulnerability issues with HTTPS based Intranet servers. When we install this update, we have to use user proxy to detect updates based on HTTPS intranet servers we cannot by default. Scanning of updates using the HTTP intranet servers will fail if we haven’t configured system proxy on the client-side. if we are using a user proxy, we must configure the behavior by “Allowing the User proxy to use as a fallback if detection using system proxy fails.”
- We should use the Windows server update services(WSUS), and Transport Layer Security (TLS) certificates Pinning on all the devices to provide a high-security level. Changing this will not affect the customers who were using HTTP WSUS servers. If your doubt wasn’t cleared, check the information on scans’ changes, improved security for windows devices article here.
