  • It stops the start of daylight saving time in Jordan at the end of October 2022. Jordan’s time zone will permanently change to UTC+3 time zone.
  • It addresses an issue that affects Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) authentication strength. It automatically raises the authentication level for all non-anonymous activation requests from DCOM clients to RPC_C_AUTHN_LEVEL_PKT_INTEGRITY. This happens if the authentication level is lower than packet integrity.
  • It fixes an issue that affects the Windows Search service. Indexing progress is slow when using the service.

  • It fixes an issue that could affect certain types of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) connections. These connections may have handshake failures. For developers, affected connections are likely to send multiple frames followed by a partial frame less than 5 bytes in size in a single input buffer. If the connection fails, your application will receive the “SEC_E_ILLEGAL_MESSAGE” error.

  • It fixes an issue that audio may not sync when you record gameplay using the Xbox Game Bar.
  • It updates the block list of vulnerable Windows kernel drivers found in the DriverSiPolicy.p7b file. This update also ensures that the block list is the same on Windows 10 and Windows 11. For more information, see KB5020779.
