KB 3105210 – Yet Another Ghost Update for Windows

attention-updates-windows-loadingMicrosoft has already released about а dozen cumulative updates. At least that’s what appears if one decides to count down the released patches to this date. Contudo, the amount of released patches may not be as crystal as one would think – Microsoft’s update policy has been shaky, para dizer o mínimo, since the release of Windows 10.

If one is the kind of user who reads the patches’ descriptions and chooses whether to install or not a certain update, they know what we mean. KB 3105210 is most likely the 10th Windows 10 cumulative, released on July 29.

InfoWorld has created an unofficial list of Windows 10 atualizações:

  • agosto. 5 – KB 3081424
  • agosto. 12 – KB 3081436
  • agosto. 14 – KB 3081438
  • agosto. 18 – KB 3081444
  • agosto. 27 – KB 3081448
  • Sept. 8 – KB 3081455
  • Sept. 15 – KB 3095020 (for Russian, búlgaro, Uzbek, Kyrgyz, Mongolian, and Tajik locale tags)
  • Sept. 30 – KB 3093266
  • outubro. 13 – KB 3097617, revised on Oct. 16
  • outubro. 20 – KB 3105514
  • outubro. 29 – KB 3105210, dated Oct. 27, but actually released on Oct. 29

What’s Peculiar about KB 3105210?

As with the official descriptions of other cumulative updates, the one for KB 3105210 doesn’t provide any useful information. This is what the statement by Microsoft is:

This update for Windows 10 includes functionality improvements and resolves the vulnerabilities in Windows that are described in the following Microsoft security bulletins and advisory:
