Microsoft has announced the cumulative updates version 1607 with build KB4478877 and 1809 with build KB446932 for Windows 10. The build KB4478877 comes with a single improvement and it’s not meant for Home and Pro SKUs as Windows 10 version 1607 is no longer receiving the updates for them. This version has already reached the end-of-support so the new updates coming to this version will only be shipped to devices running Enterprise and Education versions enrolled in the Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC).
“Addresses an issue that prevents the release of the on-demand Source Network Address Translation (SNAT) port allocated to a virtual machine (VM) after the SNAT port is no longer in use. As a result, the SNAT port becomes exhausted.”
Microsoft has also announced the Windows 10 Version 1809 Cumulative Update KB4469342 which brings a lot of improvements. Also, there a lot of fixes and known issues associated with this update. The build resolves several known bugs in Windows 10 version 1803, including a brightness issue that reset users’ preferences when the system is rebooted. The file associations issue has also been solved in this October update.
In one of the known issues, the update
“Addresses an issue with Microsoft Intune that causes devices to be incorrectly marked as not compliant because a firewall incorrectly returns a 'Poor' status. As a result, the affected devices will not receive conditional access compliance approval and may be blocked from access to corporate resources such as email.”
This cumulative update increases the OS build number to 17763.168. The Surface Book 2 customers experiencing Blue screens of Death crashes will receive the fix via the December 2018 security update.
