  • Fixed “I forgot my pin” functionality that fails to work on the lock screen. This occurs in the condition when the user has signed in using Username and Password.

  • The package fixed the system to stop working during startup. The problem takes place when you put “1” under the crashonAuditFail policy and turn On the command-line argument auditing.

  • Enabled new hardware-enforced a new Hardware enforced stack Protection feature called shadow stacks on supported hardware.
