Microsoft releases new cumulative update for Windows 10

windows update

Windows 10 is a stable OS, but it does have a few problems and glitches still in need of ironing out. New Insider Previews are set to begin arriving shortly, but in the meantime Microsoft is pushing out updates which are designed to improve the functionality of Windows 10 and resolve various vulnerabilities.

Last week the software giant released the first servicing rollup for Windows 10 which fixed several issues (but also introduced new ones for some unfortunate users), and today it releases a new cumulative update.


The KB3081436 update fixes a bunch of bugs and includes some security patches. The full list of vulnerability fixes is as follows:

  • 3086251 MS15-092: Vulnerabilities in the .NET Framework could allow elevation of privilege
  • 3084525 MS15-091: Cumulative security update for Microsoft Edge
  • 3082458 MS15-088: Unsafe command-line parameter passing could allow information disclosure
  • 3082487 MS15-085: Vulnerability in Mount Manager could allow elevation of privilege
  • 3078662 MS15-080: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft graphics component could allow remote code execution
  • 3082442 MS15-079: Cumulative security update for Internet Explorer

The update is available through Windows Update and will be downloaded and installed automatically. If you want to speed things along you can install the update now by going to Settings > Update & Security> Windows Update.

Let me know if it improves Windows 10 for you.
