July 2018 update KB4338815 and KB4338824 causes issues within World Wide Web Publishing Service on Windows Server 2012 R2 and others


  • Hi there,

    this week we have installed July 2018 Monthly Rollup KB4338815 and Security Only Update KB4338824 on Windows Server 2012 R2. Now we are experiencing issues when restarting World Wide Web Publishing Service from Services MMC or using iisreset command. It is stuck in stopping state and there is no way to solve this state until operating system reboot. We confirmed this behavior on many servers even on Windows Server 2012 (without R2) and Windows Server 2008R2. Uninstalling both Monthly Rollup and Security Only Update is now the only way to make IIS services fully working again. Can anyone confirm this?
