Work anywhere from any device with Microsoft 365

Upgrade to Microsoft 365 to work anywhere with the latest features and updates.

Upgrade now

Summary

This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Windows, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft Lync. The most severe of the vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted document or goes to an untrusted webpage that contains embedded OpenType fonts.

To learn more about the vulnerabilities, see Microsoft Security Bulletin MS15-097.

More Information

Important

  • All future security and nonsecurity updates for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2 require update 2919355 to be installed. We recommend that you install update 2919355 on your Windows RT 8.1-based, Windows 8.1-based, or Windows Server 2012 R2-based computer so that you receive future updates.

  • 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.

More Information

This security update also fixes the following non-security-related issues:

  • You receive a stop (bugcheck) error on a blue screen when you rotate a tablet that is running Windows 8.1. This problem can occur when there is a script file or a batch file in the Startup folder.

  • If you force an application window to be topmost, or "always on top," by using an option in the application, sometimes you cannot undo the "always on top" option. Therefore, the application remains topmost.


How to obtain and install the update

Method 1: Windows Update

This update is available through Windows Update. When you turn on automatic updating, this update will be downloaded and installed automatically. For more information about how to turn on automatic updating, see
Get security updates automatically.

Note For Windows RT and Windows RT 8.1, this update is available through Windows Update only.

You can obtain the stand-alone update package through the Microsoft Download Center. Follow the installation instructions on the download page to install the update.

Click the download link in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS15-097 that corresponds to the version of Windows that you are running.
