Microsoft today announced the release of Windows 10 20H2 Build 19042.572 (KB4579311) to the Beta and Release Preview Insiders running Windows 10 October 2020 Update. This is a minor update with three bug fixes and security improvements. Find the full change log below.
What’s new in Windows 10 20H2 Build 19042.572:
- We fixed an issue with a possible elevation of privilege in win32k.
- We fixed an issue with the Group Policy service that might recursively delete critical files in alphabetic order from %systemroot%\system32. This issue occurs when a policy has been configured to delete cached profiles. These file deletions might cause stop error “0x5A (CRITICAL_SERVICE_FAILED)” boot failures.
- We fixed an issue with creating null ports using the user interface.
- Security updates to Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows Media, Windows Fundamentals, Windows Authentication, Windows Virtualization, and Windows Kernel.
