Windows 10 receives update KB5005565 with security improvements

We talk a lot about Windows 11 lately but we can’t forget that Windows 10 still exists and that it will continue to be the most widely used version of Windows in the world for many years to come. On this occasion, Microsoft has released as a monthly patch the cumulative KB5005565 for versions 21H1, 20H2, 2004 and 21H2 (for Insiders who are testing it). In the case of Windows 10 version 1909, the cumulative number is KB5005566.

A single outstanding novelty for the cumulative KB5005565

You can find the full list of security fixes in the following link. The only change highlighted by Microsoft for this update is as follows:

  • Fixed an issue that causes PowerShell create an infinite number of child directories. This occurs when you use PowerShell’s move object command to move a directory to one of its children. As a result, the volume fills up and the system stops responding.

This monthly patch brings Windows 10 versions 21H1, 20H2 and 2004 to 19043.1237, 19042.1237 and 19041.1237 respectively. It is important to carry out these updates due to the large number of security patches that they integrate.

To update, we will only have to go to Settings> Update and security> Windows Update. Next, you will click on “Check for updates” and you will automatically find the September patch.
