Highlights

  • Addresses a known issue that might prevent you from using the Wi-Fi hotspot feature.

  • Addresses security issues for your Windows operating system.  

Improvements 

This security update includes quality improvements. Key changes include: 

  • Addresses a known issue that might prevent you from using the Wi-Fi hotspot feature. When attempting to use the hotspot feature, the host device might lose the connection to the internet after a client device connects.

  • Addresses an issue that might damage BitLocker virtual machine-based (VM) system files if you expand the BitLocker partition while the VM is offline.

  • Addresses an issue that prevents the use of Encrypted File System (EFS) files over a Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) connection.

  • Addresses an issue that causes Microsoft NTLM authentication using an external trust to fail. This issue occurs when a domain controller that contains the January 11, 2022 or later Windows update services the authentication request, is not in a root domain, and does not hold the Global Catalog role. The affected operations might log the following errors:

    • The security database has not been started.

    • The domain was in the wrong state to perform the security operation.

    • 0xc00000dd (STATUS_INVALID_DOMAIN_STATE).

If you installed earlier updates, only the new updates contained in this package will be downloaded and installed on your device.

How to get this update

Before installing this update

SSUs improve the reliability of the update process to mitigate potential issues while installing the LCU and applying Microsoft security updates.  For general information about SSUs, see Servicing stack updates and Servicing Stack Updates (SSU): Frequently Asked Questions

If you are using Windows Update, the latest SSU (KB5014024) will be offered to you automatically. To get the standalone package for the latest SSU, search for it in the Microsoft Update Catalog.
