More Information

  • The security fixes that are listed in the "Summary" section of this Security Only Quality Update (3205408) are also included in the December 2016 Security Monthly Quality Rollup, 3205409 . Installing either update 3205408 or 3205409 installs the security fixes that are listed here.

  • If you use update management processes other than Windows Update and you automatically approve all security updates classifications for deployment, both this December 2016 Security Only Quality Update (3205408) and December 2016 Security Monthly Quality Rollup 3205409 are deployed. We recommend that you review your update deployment rules to make sure the desired updates are deployed.
  • This Security Only Quality Update is not applicable for installation on a computer where the Security Monthly Quality Rollup or Preview of Monthly Quality Rollup from December 2016 (or a later month) is already installed, because those updates contain all of the security fixes that are included in this Security Only Quality Update.
  • If you install a language pack after you install this update, you must reinstall this update. Therefore, we recommend that you install any language packs that you need before you install this update. For more information, see Add language packs to Windows.
