Workaround

Because of an issue that affects some versions of antivirus software, this fix is being applied only to the computers on which the antivirus ISV have updated the ALLOW REGKEY.

This issue is resolved in KB4093108. You no longer need the following ALLOW REGKEY to detect and be offered this update: 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE"Subkey="SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\QualityCompat\cadca5fe-87d3-4b96-b7fb-a231484277cc

After installing KB4056897 or any other recent monthly updates, SMB servers may experience a memory leak for some scenarios. This occurs when the requested path traverses a symbolic link, mount point, or directory junction and the registry key is set to 1:  

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\LanManServer\Parameters\EnableEcp

This issue is resolved in KB4103718.
