Microsoft has released the first official ISO images of Windows 10 20H1, the OS feature update projected to be launched in the spring of 2020.

Microsoft today is rolling out a new round of cumulative updates for supported versions of Windows for this month's Patch Tuesday. Luckily there is no evidence of any of the vulnerabilities being exploited "in the wild". For more information, see CVE-2019-2102 and KB4507623.

Another couple of updates, CVE-2019-1019 and CVE-2019-1040, were necessary to stop attackers remotely running malicious code on any Windows machine, or authenticating any web server supporting Windows Integrated Authentication. A wormable vulnerability, CVE-2019-0708, which existed in Remote Desktop Services and allowed remote code execution has been patched.

When attempting to install the Windows 10 May 2019 Update on a Windows 10 system, the upgrade will be automatically blocked if external media is attached with an error message saying "This PC can't be upgraded to Windows 10".

Security updates to Windows Virtualization, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Internet Explorer, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Input and Composition, Windows Media, Windows Shell, Windows Server, Windows Authentication, Windows Cryptography, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Windows SQL Components, the Microsoft JET Database Engine, and Internet Information Services.

Addresses an issue that may prevent the Windows Mixed Reality keyboard from rendering correctly in some applications.

Microsoft says that it partially resolved an issue which would cause Windows 10 version 1903 upgrades being blocked by improper drive reassignment during installation when external USB device or memory cards are attached.

Adds updated Broadcom Wi-Fi firmware to Microsoft HoloLens.

Addresses an issue that may prevent Internet Explorer 11 from opening if the Default Search Provider is not set or is malformed.

The April 2018 Update, meanwhile, will see KB4503286, pushing the build number to 17134.829. Or, to stay on top of things, head to Settings Update & Security Windows Update to check.

Microsoft also advises against manually updating "to Windows 10, version 1903 using the Update now button or the Media Creation Tool until this issue has been resolved".

In addition to the Fast ring ISOs, Microsoft also lists system images for Slow ring insiders, albeit the existing listing points to build 18343 as the most recent release for this channel. Otherwise, you can pick up the latest Patch Tuesday fixes by checking Windows Update now. See our disclosure policy for more details.
