Windows 10: Second batch of September 2019 updates available – gHacks Tech News (via WindowsKernel.com)


Microsoft released the second batch of updates for most supported versions of the company’s Windows operating system on September 24, 2019. The company released security updates for all supported versions of Windows earlier this month.

Cumulative updates are available for Windows 10 versions 1607, 1703, 1709, 1803 and 1809; the Windows 10 version 1903 update has not been released yet and it usually takes a week or more before that happens as it undergoes an extra round of testing before release.

The updates are available via Windows Update, as direct downloads on the Microsoft Update Catalog website, but not via WSUS (Windows Server Update Services) directly.
