General Improvements and fixes on KB4516061

This non-security update build 14393.3242 doesn’t cover any new features rather comprises only the quality enhancements. Here are the Key changes-

  • Microsoft works upon an issue that illustrates a black screen when you initiate a Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) session. 
  • They address another issue that interrupts the File Explorer while working. It happens when you personalize the desktop by changing the theme, the background image, and so on.
  • The tech community discusses an issue that delays a user’s logon when one or more services operate from an account that is not a built-in account. For instance – the account may be a service account that is part of a domain or is local to the machine. The duration of the logon delay progresses by the number of services that match this criterion.
  • Tech expert alters the default setting for BitLocker when encrypting a self-encrypting hard drive. Now, the default is to use software encryption for newly encrypted drives. However, for existing drives, the type of encryption will not change. 
  • KB4516061 works upon an issue that restricts a web browser from connecting securely to Windows Server. This happens when using a client authentication certificate. For example, as a SHA512-based certificate, and the web browser does not support a signature algorithm that matches the certificate. 
  • The tech community brings improvement on an issue that may cause authentication to fail for certificate-based authentication when the certificate authentication includes a cname as part of the pre-authentication request. 
  • Microsoft team addresses an issue that chooses an SHA-1 hash algorithm for the secure (HTTPS/TLS) connection to a Windows server. 
  • The company works upon an issue that may cause the Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS) to discontinue working with an “0xc0000005” error. 
  • Build 14393.3242 works on another issue that causes the lsass.exe service to stop working. It causes the system to shut down. This only happens when migrating Data Protection API (DPAPI) credentials using dpapimig.exe with the –domain option.  
  • The tech community approaches an issue with LdapPermissiveModify requests, which fail to make Active Directory (AD) group membership changes if the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) client uses the Security Identifier (SID) syntax. At this point, Active Directory returns a “SUCCESS” status even though the change did not occur. 
  • Microsoft team works upon an issue that fails to implement changes in the %HOMESHARE% path to the folder redirection configuration. As a result, folder redirection for a known folder does not work. 
  • The company rectifies an issue that may cause a file server to stop working and may result in data loss. This problem commonly develops when you turn on the “File Server Resource Manager” quota on a file server and a disk disconnects abruptly.
  • KB4516061 cumulative update works upon a problem with the Origin request header function in IE. It occurs when you perform cross-origin resource sharing requests that use redirected resources in internal subnets.
  • The tech community addresses an issue in which netcfg fails to install the Azure Virtual Filtering Platform (VFP) driver correctly.
  • Microsoft team addresses an issue that may cause a Hyper-V virtual machine and a Hyper-V host to lose network connectivity because of an inconsistency in the media access control (MAC) address learning process. As a result, the Hyper-V virtual switch drops packets.
