Microsoft Fixes Windows Blue Screen Error After Patch Tuesday Update

In News
As a part
of their monthly routine, Microsoft released the Patch Tuesday
update on October 10. But other than the necessary security
patches and bug fixes, it also brought BSODs to some Windows
users.

The cumulative update was released for Windows 10 version
1703 (KB4041676), Windows 10 version 1607 (KB4041691), and
Windows Server 2016 (KB4041691) for WSUS/SCCM managed devices.

Microsoft has addressed the
issue
and said they are aware of it. The problem
occurred due to a “publishing issue” at the company’s end.
Without mentioning further details about why it happened, they
have corrected the publishing issue and validated the updates.

Users who had downloaded the cumulative updates through Windows
Update and Windows Update for Business weren’t affected.

Microsoft has suggested that the WSUS (Windows Server Update
Services) and SCCM (System Center Configuration Manager)
customers having affected devices can consider mitigation plans
for the following scenarios:

  • WSUS/SCCM Administrators that synced the October 10th
    update (KB4041676 or KB4041691) before 4pm PDT October 10 may
    still have these KBs cached.
  • WSUS/SCCM managed devices that downloaded the October 10
    KB4041676 or KB4041691 update with publishing issues and have
    devices in a pending reboot state.
  • WSUS/SCCM managed devices that installed the October 10
    KB4041676 or KB4041691 update and are unable to boot and/or may
    land on a recovery screen.

Solutions for these can be found on Microsoft’s
support page
describing the issue.
