First Windows 10 Update KB3081424 Released

Microsoft patches Windows 10 one week after release.

Windows 10 started to roll out on July 29. A week later Microsoft is already deploying the first update. The first Windows 10 update is detailed in Knowledge base article KB3081424.

The Windows 10 updates are cumulative. This first Windows 10 update after the launch contains all previously-released fixes. 3081424 replaces the following 3074683 Cumulative Security Update for Windows 10 from July 29, 2015.

The July 29th update fixes a vulnerability in Windows Installer Service that could allow elevation of privilege. It also fixed the Microsoft Font Driver that could allow remote code execution.

Another fix affects the Adobe Flash Player in Internet Explorer.

Microsoft lists tons of files that get updated, but does not reveal what this Windows 10 patch is actually fixing on top of the mentioned security issues. The update requires a restart of Windows 10.

Users who have turned on automatic updating will get this patch downloaded and installed automatically.

We have detailed the process to switch of automatic Windows 10 updates here for users who do not want this update for some reason.

Microsoft said that 14 million computers have been updated with Windows 10 in the first 24 hours. By now most Windows users who reserved Windows 10 should have received the free upgrade.
