.NET Framework 4.8
The December 10, 2019 update for Windows 10 version 1607 and Windows Server 2016 includes cumulative reliability improvements in .NET 4.8. We recommend that you apply this update as part of your regular maintenance routines. Before you install this update, see the Prerequisites and Restart requirement sections.
Quality and reliability improvements
ASP.NET now emits a SameSite cookie header when HttpCookie.SameSite value is "None" to accommodate upcoming changes to SameSite cookie handling in Chrome. As part of this change, FormsAuth and SessionState cookies are also issued with SameSite = 'Lax' instead of the previous default of 'None', though these values can be overridden in web.config. Applications that use these cookies across sites – or with iframes – may see a loss of functionality that will require configuration updates to remedy.
