I just wanted to give a heads up to some recent issues that we are seeing across Office Deployment.

    Security Fixes MS13-072 and MS13-073 MS13-074

Two security updates released yesterday MS13-072, MS13-073 and MS13-074, These are installing fine but if you scan the machine again for updates, show up again and again and again. Currently there is no fix available for these other than to say that the update is applied but it is not getting properly detected. The product group is aware of the issues and are working on it.

We appreciate your patience and understand on this.

Thank you.

nothing to confirm on my side, I have not updated since 314.07 , no issues here .
but judging from all the issues many have with freezes , TDR 's among other game issues seems the 32x.xx is having hard time with stability .

Lets see what next version does .
Title: Re: Windows RT, Windows 8, and Windows Server 2012 monthly update
Post by: BenYeeHua on September 14, 2013, 01:16:52 AM
Yup, and I just get some information about the next WHQL driver, they just found some bug and it will taking some time.
So I guess we might get the driver next week, as they don't has ETA, I can't confirm which date the WHQL driver will coming out.

And this show that, sometimes the newest/latest one don't mean the best stability, except it fix some stability issue without bring more stability issue. ;)
Title: Re: Windows RT, Windows 8, and Windows Server 2012 monthly update
Post by: edkiefer on September 14, 2013, 08:36:52 AM
two things come to mind IMO .

1) It doesn't really matter with Nvidia on beta or WHQL as far as stability .

2) They should not mention ETA on WHQL or even beta , just get out a beta like once a month as long as progress happened .

Being once a developer I can say its worst thing to do , it hardly helps by giving a release time .
Title: Re: Windows RT, Windows 8, and Windows Server 2012 monthly update
Post by: BenYeeHua on September 14, 2013, 11:20:46 AM
Yup. ;)
Many times I saw some online game getting the patch out on ETA, as it is their ETA, and causing many issue when gamer is playing...
Title: Re: Windows RT, Windows 8, and Windows Server 2012 monthly update
Post by: BenYeeHua on October 08, 2013, 07:17:27 PM
Not too much, they are using many small updates to fix the driver vulnerabilities.
And a vulnerabilities for some OpenType or TrueType font files.

Some performance improve for USB webcam, fixed some shortcut key on the keyboard stop working.
Some high DPI issues for office, this is one of the biggest issues for windows, which you has many software don't support High DPI correctly...

For Flash Player, when they has a release note?
http://helpx.adobe.com/en/flash-player/release-note/fp_119_air_39_release_notes.html (http://helpx.adobe.com/en/flash-player/release-note/fp_119_air_39_release_notes.html)
---
So I just check awhile, it look like they only has the release notes after they change like from 11.8 to 11.9.

Anyways, if you has any issues like BSOD after install the update, just post at here to let other people know.  :)

It look like Microsoft still patching the Windows 8, even Windows 8.1 has being coming out.

lol, I never know IE has changelog for it. ;)
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2888505 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2888505)

And they disable IE 11 Enhanced Protected Mode, so it look like many add-on(active-x) don't support x64 yet.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2907803 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2907803)

People who having the DirectX 10(not DirectX 10.1) Graphic card, you can install this update to fix some DX10.1/11 app/game that causing UI issues.
But I think which UI it's means.... as Game has UI like the menu.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2882780 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2882780)

If I am right, the fix on Windows 8.1 has also patch on Windows 8, which is USB 3.0 driver like power on/off for device that asking too much current.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2894513 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2894513)

And they disable RC4 too, which is disabled as default with Windows 8.1, it look like just Windows 8.1 are for testing, after stable, they patch it on Windows 8 ;D

Just Installed IE11 on win7 through windows update  , they set the enhanced protection mode off by default, same with the tracking protection stuff .

I has enabled Enhanced Protected Mode for a long time, 1 year since I am start using Windows 8, no issues so far, as most of my add-on/active-x support 32/64-bit.  :)

And good news for Windows 8.1 user, so far 1 of the 2 bug that stopping me for update to Windows 8.1 has a workaround, and the other bug is on the graphic card driver.

The mouse issues on Game software that using DirectInput for example.

I just found out that windows 8.1 has the UEFI Modules fix when it's just come out, and Windows 8.1 no longer using MSRT, it look like they switch to or improved their Windows Defender.

And ya, 1 thing about Windows Defender for windows 8.1, it has a feature that repair the system DLL, if they found out the DLL is broken or something like that, then they will download the same version from Microsoft website, and repair it.
It may look like not so NEW, but who(anti-virus) has a bigger store and knowing more about Windows? ;)
----
And ya.
While I am downloading the Adobe Flash Player for IE10, I has downloaded the Adobe Flash Player for Firefox, via manually.
I just thinking that, is it right for letting Windows Update handle the Adobe Flash Player update?

As I know, many people like to disable the Windows Update, but they strangely not disable other software update, I guess it is because software normally don't causing crash or BSoD.
So for people like that, moving the Adobe Flash Player update to Windows Update will/might increase their risk for facing more security issues.

And it will be fun to find out that, did moving the update to Windows Update will affecting how many people, as normally people are using Chrome. ;D

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2905454/en (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2905454/en)

It look like this update also only without Windows 8.1, I wonder what's windows 8.1 changed?
Maybe something that don't need to get the update from Windows Update, but just sync?

Ya, but start from Windows 8, you has to update them via Windows Update, as it is just like Chrome, has a special design for IE10/11.

You can check that the hardware acceleration is gone for IE on Windows 8/8.1. :)

Anyways, I hope many software provider can provide their own uninstaller to clean up the thing that left over, if their uninstaller is stop working normally for some reason.
Or just don't left too much thing that will affecting the system, or software itself.

It is the day again, but we got many thing too.(but less from MS) ;)
AMD Kaveri, but only reducing the power consumption for now(increase CPU performance, but reducing frequency as it is bulk, not SOI), as no even one HSA software can run.
So Intel is still a winner for CPU, and AMD fail to show off their GPU power, as they can't solve their bandwidth issues for GPU, and not many gamer need that performance level to playing game.
But it can be a new thing for more easy to compute with GPU, we don't know until the software is coming out. :D

It look like as Windows 8.1 Update 1 is coming out, or it is New year, I don't get many update for Windows 8. :)

Only 1 fix for Flash player, 1 fix for issues that might facing if you try to update Windows 8 to windows 8.1, and rarely TCP connection issues?

Yes, AMD, Nvidia an all rest are still on 2xnm ( for Kaveri 28nm)  so not much power or performance can be haved w/o making chip use more energy .

intel has big leg up here and hopefully they won't drop the ball increasing there HD graphics with next/newer chips .

For this, I think Intel will increase the gaming performance for GPU too, even Intel is not one of the HSA member.
(but I am not sure about compute, as it look like this is just for saving bandwidth to improve GPU performance only.)
Because it is strangely that Intel support 1 thing to improve the GPU performance with Haswell, which is one thing for HSA.
Quote
The second extension, InstantAccess is simply Intel's implementation of zero copy. Although Intel's processor graphics have supported unified memory for a while (CPU + GPU share the same physical memory), the two processors don't get direct access to each others memory space. Instead, if the GPU needs to work on something the CPU has in memory, it needs to make its own copy of it first. The copy process is time consuming and wasteful. As we march towards true heterogeneous computing, we need ways of allowing both processors to work on the same data in memory. With InstantAccess, Intel's graphics driver can deliver a pointer to a location in GPU memory that the CPU can then access directly. The CPU can work on that GPU address without a copy and then release it back to the GPU. AMD introduced support for something similar back with Llano.
http://www.anandtech.com/show/6863/intels-pixelsync-instantaccess-two-new-directx-extensions-for-haswell (http://www.anandtech.com/show/6863/intels-pixelsync-instantaccess-two-new-directx-extensions-for-haswell)

So I think that HSA can be future, but the issues is the standard for HSA, and Intel don't agree standard set by AMD I guess?

And even HSA making GPGPU more easy, but it increase more issues for devs, so they need to learn about how to using GPGPU too, and also transfer of data, as the latency between CPU and GPU is still there, they just reduced.

A little tips here.

If you see TiWorker.exe is running and biting CPU+Hard Disk usage, it is just compress unused file that get replaced/patched and keeping the old file by Windows Update.

If you don't like that, you can just remove the old file that get updated by Windows Update, but remember!
After you deleted the old file, you can never uninstall the Update, as the old file is not there, Windows update can't get the old file, then replace the new file.
So except you really lack of disk space, and it is stable after update/you like to reinstall windows than uninstall update, then it is not recommend that remove the old file.  ;)

The HSA will definilty help portables and APU's  but I wonder if there be some issues at first when using dGPU were now you have fast GDDR memory working with slower system memory . I wonder if latency or timings will get hurt .

Even though I am on Win7 and none of those installed today, I noticed whatever of 3 patches (kb2913602, Kb2913431 and Kb2862330 ) , one made all my USB devices resync with system .

Yup, that is for Windows 8, as windows 8 start removing old code I guess, and also making small change into 1 patch every month, but not the SP(Service Pack), and let the Update 1 becoming a big patch.

For HSA, I don't think it will help portables, as you can just see how many difference hardware with smartphone.
And mobile need less power consumption, they will love cloud compute for them.
Except many people need GPU process power for processing thing on their smartphone, or it will not very helpful.

For windows 8, we only get IPv6 update, which might showing that using Windows 8.1 will be fixed this issues earlier, like what I said before?

But yes, the DISM.exe is getting famous to repair the system file, since Windows 8 coming out.
I also found some corrupt file while checking it, I guess it is caused by the BSoD that I facing before. :D

21 days without reboot~  ;)
For now, some process PID is 1xxxx, I wonder how many computer can made it to more than 20000+ PID. :D
(Of cause without using a script to run and end the process again and again.)

But now I has to reboot and update many thing. ;D

The Silverlight got a update, and it might taking long time to install, on my side, he just repeat running the same process, end it, until I open the "My Computer".
This might be caused by the IE is running.

Yup, so I guess only Windows 8 is getting less fix.

And for Windows 8.1, to know more about it, using it myself is better than reading about how good it is, so I am trying to find a ways to download the installer in a better ways.

As you know, slow internet connection is huge pain for downloading huge file, so I may choose using the ISO upgrade rather than Windows Store upgrade. ;D

For fastest update, I can just patch with Update 1, which having all the update before.

Maybe it only showing up after some patch is installed. :)

Assume that you have a Windows 8.1-based device that is connected to an authenticated proxy. In this situation, Windows Location Provider fails the geolocation lookup for IP addresses or Wi-Fi location sources. Therefore, no location information is available for the device unless it has GPS. For example, the Bing Maps app cannot place your location on a map, and the Bing Weather app cannot determine your city.
Quote
Assume that a Windows 8.1-based computer has the fast startup feature enabled. When you right-click the Start hint and then select the Shut down option to shut down the computer, the shutdown time is longer than when you shut down the computer by using the new Windows UI. Additionally, the system will take much longer to start the next time that you start the computer.

Cause
When you select the Shut down option from the right-click context menu on the Start hint, the system will do a complete shutdown even though the fast startup feature is enabled. However, when you shut down the computer by using the new Windows UI, the system will enter a hybrid sleep state.

When you have a computer that has the High Precision Event Timer (HPET) hardware timer and Windows 8.1 installed, you encounter a 0x9F Stop error from the Usbhub.sys driver.

Cause
This issue occurs because both the HPET hardware timer and the hardware itself update certain registers at the same time, and this leads to a race condition.

On net framework 4.5.2 wonder why win updater doesn't update it from 4.5.1 .

Did you use the web installer ?
Yup, using the web installer is the safest ways to make sure all needed installer will be download and install.
And this is normal, Microsoft never push newer .Net or C++ runtime(if I am right, Windows Update also showing C++ patch only) via Windows Update, only patch, except you want to install it, or like update to Windows 8.1 which having .Net 4.5.1 installed. :)

Also something interesting, for the patch that fixing .Net, it don't list .Net 4.5.2, but Windows Update still patch it.
I guess Microsoft is waiting some user like me as their "lab rats", testing it before letting anyone that reading the patch note will found this newer .Net. ;)
---
And also some fact about the MA(Microsoft Anti-Malware), for Windows 7 users that using MSE, they are "lab rats" too.
After being tested by Windows 7 MSE users, the patch will be pushed to Windows 8+ users that using Windows Defense.

So yup, except it is the software like IE or Windows Defense that bundled into Windows, you will be a safer "lab rats" that download it via MS website, as they also has some chosen users to access the beta too. 8)

Improved Family Safety web filtering function.
Quote
After this update is installed, parents have more flexibility to filter out unsuitable web content and a complete view of the search terms their children use on search engines.

Family Safety provides activity reports that show parents the search terms their children enter when they use a search engine. Family Safety also enforces the "safe search" feature by communicating this setting to search engine sites every time a child performs a search. The "safe search" setting causes search engines to filter adult material out of all search results. Currently, some search engine sites require that web browser connections to their sites use encryption, and this impedes our ability to implement these search engine safety features. The Family Safety update can continue to provide these search engine safety features to Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 users.

If there is a C:\users\<Username>\OneDrive folder, Explorer tries to check the MSA information. However, if your account is not connected to a MSA, the SkyDriveShell.dll module freezes for 30 seconds during the initialization.

Note As soon as you connect your account to a MSA, the C:\Users\<Username>\Onedrive folder is created. Preinstalled Microsoft Office 2013 Service Pack 1 also creates the C:\Users\<Username>\Onedrive folder.
So it is a bug with SkyDrive or OneDrive.

For Precision touchpad, this is a new type hardware of touchpad that transfer nearly Raw input to Windows, and it don't need any driver, and it is a MS standard, which means that you will know how it works by just reading the help from Windows.
But you will lost ability to customize it with gestures, like three finger to right click etc, until Windows or some software support it.

It can update the firmware too, and it will fix if the update fail like power cut off, but I am not sure about how this will works.

The issue occurs because a power I/O request packet (IRP) expires while it waits for the power arbiter thread to complete the power request. The power arbiter thread waits to lock a resource that is already obtained by another thread. The resource is not released when the system is turned off, and this causes the power IRP to expire.

A bit late for this update, but I want to waiting for MS confirm the issues first, as I am not facing this issues. :)

For Windows 7 - 8.1, if you are facing 0x50 BSoD, Font not rendering/showing, fail to delete font etc, it is caused by this 4 patch, and MS has been removed the download link.
If you wanna stability, you should remove this 4 patch.

Look like yesterday, MS released a new patch(KB2993651) without breaking the font and boot, after they pulled the patch(KB2982791).
You should install it as it fix vulnerability. :)

Quote
I already successfully installed the original 2982791 security update and am not experiencing any difficulties. Should I apply the replacement update (2993651) released on August 27, 2014?
Yes. All customers should apply the 2993651 update, which replaces the expired 2982791 update. Customers do not need to uninstall the expired 2982791 update before applying the 2993651 update; however, Microsoft strongly recommends it. Customers who do not remove the expired update will retain a listing for 2982791 under installed updates in Control Panel.

I normally read the MS info on it but this time it was plastered all over the place .

Honestly why can't the just have it uninstall the old one first .

many times if you do large amount of updates it will only do part and then install rest, so its smart to do that I don't see why this is even a issue .

I think it just replace the whole system files.
Most of the time, the newer patch will replace the old one, compress the replaced file and keep it on the WinSxS folder as a backup, so you are allow to uninstall it.
This is also why your system drive get bigger and bigger every month.

And that's why you better using only Windows Update, as sometimes third-part software that provide similar function like Windows Update forgot to set the old patch as replaced, so they will install the old one, then install the newer one, which causing more download, install and less disk space.
It can be even worst, after you install the newer one without install the old one, they will read the "Installed Update" list and found that this old patch is not there, then trying to patch it.

If you are unlucky that the system fail to detect it is a replaced update, it will install it and bang! 8)

Yup, as it is just less than or 10 files(windows 8.1 64 bit - 10, win 7 64 bit - 6) update, it should not be slowing down too much for just patching it. ;)

Look like after they patched KB2993651 which solved boot crash, font issues etc, they release the August 2014 update rollup again.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2975719 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2975719)

And, you need to install 2993651 first before install 2975719.
Quote
To apply this update, follow these steps:
1.Install update 2919355 on the Windows 8.1-based or Windows Server 2012 R2-based computer, and then restart the computer.
2.Install update 2993651 on the computer, and then restart the computer.
This 2975719 also fixed this issues, and nope, it look like it is not named as v2.

You cannot use printers to print files after applying update 2975719 in Windows 8.1

----
So, here is the story.
If you installed 2975719 and facing BSoD or font issues, MS released 2993651 that replace 2982791, then MS released 2975719 again that need 2993651 without showing much about 2975719 is a fixed version.

To keep it simple, just install all update from Windows Update, then restart, then install again, then restart, then... ::)

A little thing/bug, the Windows update will suck on downloading update, 3%, but it is backing up the old files, you can confirm this by checking the hard disk light or usage. ;)

Broadcast storm for Hyper-V user that switch from a network card to another network card
Quote
Consider the following scenario:•You have at least three client computers that are running Windows 8.1.
•The client computers each have one Ethernet network adapter and one Wi-Fi network adapter installed.
•You configure the client computers for the Hyper-V role.
•You connect both the Ethernet and Wi-Fi network adapter on each computer to the same subnet.
•You bind the Hyper-V virtual switch to the Wireless network adapter.

In this scenario, a broadcast "Unsolicited Neighbor" advertisement is sent from the Ethernet network adapter that contains the Ethernet network's source MAC address. Then, the virtual switch on the wireless network adapter receives this packet and duplicates it so that it contains the Wi-Fi network adapter's source MAC address. This may trigger a broadcast storm, as in the following example:

Just want to said that, after restart the computer, you may found that Windows fail to install KB2984006 (September roll up patch), and trying to install it will get a error 80200056. :P
I think it is because it don't install the KB2975719(v3 or latest version), so it fail to detect that it need install another small patch first(you can see there are more patch/MSU files in KB2984006 - File information).

Just a simple fix, wait for the Tiworker.exe finish the jobs to compress first, then you re-detect the updates that needs by clicking on "Check for updates" on the left hand side, then it will detect another small patch that it need, and you just tick it, and let it download/install again. ;)
(yup, you will found that it don't download anything before you check for updates and try to install again)

From the outside, we all wonder how these mega-corps screw up so bad. From the inside, it's obvious. They don't listen to their engineers, who are continually marginalized. Guidance is instead taken from the professional managers and their crystal balls, who invariably believe they are smarter than everyone else. I've yet to see a large corporation that is run well. Even Google's culture is starting to crumble.. and, if you remember, it succeeded because it was different in that it kept engineers in the driver seat.

And everyone is good on difference thing, so as a professional mangers, you should not be good on all thing, but manage.

Anyways, most big-mega corps is still there, because they has difference team/department for difference software/functions, so they don't break all thing except that software/functions. :)

You can just using the inbuilt updater as well, as it is much smaller than download the full installer.
But the full installer is still useful to make sure all file is updated completely, and also as a backup for reinstall Windows without re-download them all. ;)

Post by: BenYeeHua on September 18, 2014, 08:09:14 PM
Yup, if your download speed is very fast, choosing full installer than using the updater is much better.
And most of the software also don't reduce the update size at all(or provide partial update), they just push the full installer and silent install/update it.

So in most of the case(except you has a slow download speed like me, or lazy etc), it is better that you download a full installer which provide more install options than a auto update, so it don't doing something strange to your system. ;)

Increase prominence of Web suggestions for IE11, and removed default domain suggestions(A.K.A. ads)
Quote
Increasingly, users search the web through the Internet Explorer address bar. To keep up with this growing need, this update increases prominence of web suggestions in Internet Explorer 11 so that you can easily select an appropriate web search suggestion. The changes include the following:

•History and Favorites group headers are not displayed in the suggestions list of the address bar. This lets more suggestions display in the same vertical space.
•For certain queries, there may only be several web suggestions. However, for other more ambiguous queries, more web suggestions may have to be displayed to capture your intent. With this update, the search engine can control how many web suggestions are appropriate for the typed query so that you receive the appropriate number of relevant suggestions.
•Domain suggestions for sites that you never visited before are not displayed (for example, if you type "m" and you had never visited "mapquest.com", it will not be displayed). These domain suggestions did not receive many clicks from you and yet you use valuable real estate. Instead, more relevant suggestions are displayed.

November 2014 update rollup
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3000850 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3000850)

Quote
This update rollup includes the following new features and improvements:
•Refreshed language packs
•Defence-in-depth security and Schannel hardening
•Support for newer hardware (boot order allowance, SD card improvements, USB debugging)
•Improved Web Services for Devices (WSD) printer support during network switches
•Performance and reliability improvements in clustered virtual machine mission-critical environments
•Improved manageability
•Additional hardware support (devices that have third-party disk encryption software enabled can now be upgraded to Windows 8.1 more easily)

This November update rollup also includes all previous updates since our last image update in April 2014. This is a convenient single step to bring Windows clients and servers up to date. Unlike our April update, the November update rollup is not required to be able to continue to receive security or other updates. However, we strongly recommend that you deploy it to Windows clients and servers to benefit from these new features and improvements as well as to prevent many known issues that have been resolved since April. This update is thoroughly tested to the same quality level as our previous service packs. However, unlike service packs, this update does not change the version number and does not deprecate or change any APIs in a manner that would require recertification.

And here is the file size. :)

Local IP address cannot be registered on DNS server after DNS Client service is restarted
Quote
This occurs because the DNS client service has an idle time-out, and it restarts on demand when it is needed. This issue occurs when the DNS Client stopped after it is idle (15 minutes default), and then restarts. After the service restarts in Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, or Windows Server 2012 R2, the local IP addresses stop being registered in DNS. Therefore, as the time stamp of the record is not updated, DNS scavenger eventually deletes this record and the server becomes unreachable by DNS name.

Note This issue only occurs if the firewall rule allowing IPv6 Link-Local Multicast Name Resolution (LLMNR) traffic is disabled as then the service does not have to listen to the LLMNR traffic. Only then it stops when idle.

Look like we has some critical update for Adobe, but you can "only" update it by using auto-update from Adobe, until January 26.
It should update your Adobe Flash Player to 16.0.0.296, and for IE(Windows 8+) and Chrome user, please waiting Windows or Google push the update, or just download the PPAPI version for your Chrome.... :)

For user that like to disable auto-update like me, you can just enable Click to Play or ActiveX filtering to only run it when you need it... :P

Summary

A critical vulnerability (CVE-2015-0311) exists in Adobe Flash Player 16.0.0.287 and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh.  Successful exploitation could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.  We are aware of reports that this vulnerability is being actively exploited in the wild via drive-by-download attacks against systems running Internet Explorer and Firefox on Windows 8.1 and below.

UPDATE (January 24): Users who have enabled auto-update for the Flash Player desktop runtime will be receiving version 16.0.0.296 beginning on January 24. This version includes a fix for CVE-2015-0311. Adobe expects to have an update available for manual download during the week of January 26, and we are working with our distribution partners to make the update available in Google Chrome and Internet Explorer 10 and 11. For more information on updating Flash Player please refer to this post.

On the other side, If you are like to run Java Online Installer, please be aware that, if you are doing that in China, you will receive Baidu's Family(China version, like Anti-virus or other software) as there are some CDN or ISP injected/changed the page that it will be loading, or the file that Java will be downloaded.

And yes, Baidu's software China version(not international, they only do this once in past.) are malware, so far if you got one of their software, then you will receive the Baidu Anti-virus which you can't uninstall it.(Yes, they will come back after a restart, and it is hard to clean it.) >:(

Secure Channel cumulative update changes TLS protocol renegotiation and fallback behavior
Quote
Applications or services that use the Secure Channel (SChannel) security support provider, such as Internet Explorer, may incorrectly negotiate to non-Microsoft website hosts by using the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol. Therefore, the affected application may not establish a connection or may be instructed to negotiate the use of a less-secure protocol such as Secure Sockets Layer protocol version 3.0 (SSL 3.0).

This issue occurs because some third-party implementations of the TLS protocol do not correctly negotiate when empty TLS extensions are present at the end of the extension list.
Simple English, it make sure it will use TLS first, for some server. :)

Quote
This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerability could allow security feature bypass if an attacker, by way of a man-in-the-middle attack, causes the Group Policy Security Configuration Engine policy file on a targeted system to become corrupted or otherwise unreadable. This results in the Group Policy settings on the system to revert to their default, and potentially less secure, state.
Fixed vulnerability in Group Policy, that can be created by corrupt the policy file, and it will revert the settings to default. :P

An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in Microsoft Windows when it fails to properly validate and enforce impersonation levels.

Yup, but the Windows Update always don't notice you when it has a new update/push, by using the notification.
(but they always force restart after you installed the update)
They just notice you with the yellow color texts on the bottom right corner when the system is booting, which is most people are going to make some drinks or coffees. ;)
(They also reporting it via the Action Center, but who gonna click it when it don't change the icon...)

I hope they are adding this feature for Windows 10 notification, as the notification is only used by Modern apps, and also a few desktop apps for reporting the boot time. :P

Various Samsung TV models, planned for release in 2015, are preconfigured to support Miracast as both a wireless display device and a source of display content.

Which is mostly what Flash is used for these days, aside from games (obviously).

Microsoft's Silverlight was supposed to replace flash. It had some success. Amazon Video uses it, at least optionally.

But, like many Microsoft and large corporate projects, they are too quick to abandon them if they don't achieve instant market success. If I had done the same with the first years of Bitsum, none of this would exist. Persistence - it has it's rewards ;).

That's what you call Microsoft executives exerting their political persuasion to other executives of big companies. That is what Bitsum faces as well, these larger entities often have high-level corporate agreements made that even senior engineers can't object to.

e.g.

CTO of company X says: I have the perfect solution for you! It will save you bandwidth, improve video quality, and more!
CTO of company Y says: Wow! That'd be great! Let's sign an agreement right now!

Senior engineer of company Y says: WTF?!? Why didn't you consult me?
CTO of company Y says: This agreement was made above your head. Just get it done.

That said, Silverlight does play video just fine ;).

Post by: BenYeeHua on June 25, 2015, 07:02:24 PM
Yup, Flash and Silverlight can playing video just fine, as it can using hardware acceleration, so it was just 1-5% CPU for watching video.
(For Flash, except you are using Firefox which is not forcing it, and also Chrome which forcing it but need to take some CPU and I/O to copying around)

With China, they rarely use hardware acceleration for unknown reason, but at least for now, it can be used by right click on the player and select it.

They also famous with real-time overlaying subtitle system, which is came(copy) from NicoNico.
This indeed need a lot of CPU for moving subtitle, and they also don't support HTML5 well because, why you need to change when the current technology are working well. ::)
(Only they provide HTML5 and App when it is iOS, and only App when it is Android. ;D)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niconico
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bilibili

And ya, they also using it for Forum Avatar Upload, Notification(Baidu Tieba), Ads and other thing like raining/snowing effect on the website.
I guess this will not changed easily, because it is much harder for them to waste more money to develop on HTML5. :P

Not sure about that, as there are no release note for each small version bump, so I am very not sure did they push to the beta version for testing first, or just push to beta and release channel together.

But normally when Adobe Flash Player released release version updated to fix some vulnerabilities, they will also update the beta version as well. :)

Well, I just tested the P2P system(but I only allow PC on my local network) for the Windows Update, but...

It seen like after you restart your computer, it will not works.

Or it is because I don't enable network discovery on the netbook, so it don't discover this laptop.

Or it did works, just it download a very small part from me.
Quote
PCs on your local network. When Windows downloads an update or app, it will look for other PCs on your local network that have already downloaded the update or app using Delivery Optimization. Windows then downloads parts of the file from those PCs and parts of the file from Microsoft. Windows doesn’t download the entire file from one place. Instead, the download is broken down into smaller parts. Windows uses the fastest, most reliable download source for each part of the file.

Anyways, you may try enable the network discovery first, if you really don't has a fast download speed and want to use this local P2P, it is on the Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network and Sharing Center\Advanced sharing settings . :)

Somehow they still leave the old WinSxS(4GB for me) behind, I guess because some old update has also bring over to Windows 10.(Like C++ 2010)

But it should be safe to clean it up.
So, you can run the "Disk Cleanup" or "CCleaner" with Administrator right, then just clean it up. ;)

Title: Re: Windows 10 update
Post by: BenYeeHua on October 13, 2015, 02:59:50 PM
Well, another time for update, but this time it is Office 2016+Windows 10. ;)

Before today's update:
Office 2016
Vulnerabilities fix + improvement for Skype for Business with high class microphone(well, just a stereo microphone ::)).

Adobe has released a bit earlier than MS, I guess this will become a new ways to avoid the CDN caching the old Flash Player?
Adobe Flash Player has updated to version 19.0.0.207, while Adobe Air has updated to version 19.0.0.213.
Adobe Acrobat Reader DC has updated to version 2015.009.20069.

A lot of vulnerabilities has been fixed, which is more than 10, if you wonder the amount, just go to this address and count yourself, it is really a lot of them.(As Acrobat Reader will not be updating monthly) :P

https://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/acrobat/apsb15-24.html

---Office 2016
Well, something wrong here, I has used the official clean up tools to clean up Office 2013, the key is also removed, so I guess it is an error on the server side, or it is also for Office 2016..

EDIT:Fixed by following the instruction for removing Office 2016 manually, it is because somehow office 2013 proofing tools are not removed and not showing up in the Programs and Feature, I also found some leftover installer from Windows 8 too, maybe I should clean it up when I has free time. :)

PS:Also a bit information, if you are using Office 365, it will be much smaller patch compare to this Office 2016 VL version. :)

Error dialog pop out when you are using compatibility mode in Windows 8+, for Office 2013...

Oracle's latest Java Update bundle is Yahoo as your default search engine (and maybe their toolbar). Microsoft should stand up to them. We all should. For PCs, Java is not only a security risk (I've since uninstalled it entirely), but it's run by a terrible company.

Well, it is worst in China, they promoted Baidu's Product at the time, when Baidu's promoter start being crazy(as it is the last month of the past year, so they want to earn some more money) and installing some driver to protect Baidu's Products from getting uninstalled, once you installed one of them, you will get a bundle of the family coming to you computer, unless you clean up very carefully, it will be coming back after you reboot and connect to the internet.

And because of their country's law, any anti-virus in that country can't do anything to this adware, or they will be sue for blocking competitor illegal.

As far as I know, there are still a lot of computer still having that driver installed and running, lucky they stop installing other Baidu's product, not sure it will be installed in new computer or not.(and yes, it will be leftover after you uninstall all Baidu Product, as it is not listed on the Program & Feature)

And that's why I provide the link to the page that contain Offline installer, as only Online installer has it.(unless I am wrong)

For safe, it has provided a settings inside the Java Control Panel - Advanced - Miscellaneous - "Suppress sponsor offers when installing or updating Java", and you can enable it. :)
------
For security, at least they are putting "Very high" for running Java software in the browser, unless someone leak their cert, it should be no problem anymore.(unless you run it on the local, of cause...)

I removed Java from my XP system and never installed on Win7 64bit one , been like 4 yrs now .

I never found i needed it .
Well, I found many old Edu website are providing free guideline or tutorial of their math subjects on the Internet, and most of them are using Java and Flash to present how's the math works, so... :P

And as I said before, it need cert to allow them to run, so most website that using Java can't be run because of the cert is missing, and it should be fine to uninstall it now. ::)

My kids like to play Minecraft, so I have no choice really...  >:(
Yes, until the Minecraft Windows 10 version become popular, but I think it will be hard, as it may only supported with Windows 10, so it is a issues when most Windows 7 fighter will still using Windows 7.(mainly because more old game can't be run in Windows 10, compare to Windows 7 and 8/8.1, and they don't want use VM for it.) :-\

Quote
Microsoft should stand up to them.
Well, most user don't installed Java, trust me, unless they are playing Minecraft, I don't found any of them install Java because they will not facing any Java software on the Internet, they even don't know they can install or run it, when the browser tell them.
(I know it by guiding them to use the Nvidia Geforce website to auto-check for their graphic model, which used Java.)
Of cause it is limited to China, so it can be difference compare to other country.

And I guess what's Microsoft has done is like the other Browser, they just stop supporting Java in browser, Chrome has stop any NPAPI plugins, Firefox has stop any plugins other than Flash in 64-bit browser(and also said they will stop supporting NPAPI in 32-bit in the future, except Flash), and Edge has stop supporting any Active-X, except Flash.(not talking about IE, as it is only left with bug fix)

I think they might also do something with the Windows Defender, but I am not sure did they will block Yahoo or not, because it should be low-risk to the system, so Windows Defender will not detect and kill it.

Or you are asking something like Adobe Flash Player, which provide update by Windows Update? :D
(even it is limited to IE and Edge, and Chrome has provide update too, just except Firefox and other Chromium browser...)

PS: Yes, it is still the same Active-X version for Edge, if you wonder did there are any change to plugins support in Edge. ;D
PS2: I also forgot, I am using Java for running Jdownloader 2, sometimes. ::)

However, the new chart parts need their own content type, and shouldn't rely on the old content type.

Windows 10 TH2(10586) has released, and it is a ESD, means it is a complete Windows 10 installer, and the file size is ~2GB for x86, ~2.5GB for x64.

If you can't get it via WSUS(means it don't showing up in Windows Update) like me, then you can choose to download the ISO or ESD to ISO(MediaCreationTool).

Be careful that, you can't get the Single Language Edition via choosing create ISO, you need to select the Upgrade this computer or the first options to get the correct ESD. :)
Then after you select the first options, If you want to get a ISO as backup, you can get the download address via open a PowerShell(Admin), then run
Code: [Select]
Get-BitsTransfer -AllUsers | select *to see the download address, and don't be surprised to see your Chrome update is also inside. ;D

And here is the current latest tools to convert ESD to ISO, you should Google the tutorial if you don't know how to use it. ;)

(You can get the latest link from MyDigitalLife forum, but it required you to login.)

ISO
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/techbench (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/techbench)

PS: The ISO servers is under heavy load now, so if your CDN server can't connect it, then you will get 504 error, just give it a few F5 and it should be fine, if there is no speed, then you can wait or just download the ESD
PS2: The ISO is the same as the ISO downloaded from MSDN, it means you can apply SVF patch to change it to other language or edition, after someone created a SVF patch for it. ;)
PS3: The ESD is much safer as it is download via HTTPS, I am not sure why the ISO is still providing via HTTP.... :P

Speaking of all things Microsoft, does anyone use microsoft exchange? I know if you get it from www.1and1.co.uk/microsoft-exchange (http://www.1and1.co.uk/microsoft-exchange), it comes with Outlook 2013, so sounds like a good deal. Any reviews from other users?

Well, first, I am sorry for stopping updating this topic, not too much energy for keeping it update anymore, as University is killing your time for not letting you learn your own knowledge. ::)

Think the update is a little better...but not much.
And ya, that's why you can see the update has always changing, unless I know how to reverse the file and check which has been changed.
I guess the changelog at here should not showing much, it is mainly just a record in case some bug showing up after patching the system, so I can know which patch is the cause. ;)

Not for me, I somehow a bit hate email, it is becoming a strange thing now, as it become the last door to reset most of my accounts, so I will not using any software that had login my email, for security. ::)
