  • Question

  • We deployed the July Patch rollup previously, which did a great job at speeding up patch scans.  Today it seems Microsoft released a new revision without any release notes on what changed?

    Updates for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

    August 16, 2016 — KB3179573
    This update includes quality improvements. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. Key changes include:
    • Improved performance on specific networks that have a high-bandwidth and low latency.
    • Addressed issue with users encountering a bugcheck, when trying to access a domain DFS namespace (for example, \\contoso.com\SYSVOL) on a computer that is configured to require mutual authentication (by using the UNC Hardened Access feature).

      This problem may occur if the selected domain controller has security update KB3161561 installed, and if the SmbServerNameHardeningLevel registry entry is configured to a non-zero value on the domain controller.
