MS16-098: Description of the security update for Windows kernel-mode drivers...
- http://www.infoworld...kb-3176493.html
Aug 15, 2016 - "... Microsoft's latest Patch Tuesday bug appears to affect Vista, Windows 7, 8.1, RT 8.1, as well as Server 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, and 2012 R2. More than that, it appears to clobber all versions of Windows 10. In other words, if you applied the latest cumulative update to any version of Windows 10, your printer won't work right...
Microsoft has admitted to distributing the bug, but there's no indication when it will issue a fix..."

Dan Mattson - Microsoft: "... we are actively investigating this issue and have updated some of the KB articles involved with a 'Known Issues' section:
"After you apply this security update and you print multiple documents in succession, the first two documents may print successfully. However, the third and subsequent documents may not print."

Fix for print bug in MS16-098 for Win7 and 8.1 – not Win10
> http://www.infoworld...windows-10.html
Aug 25, 2016 - "... Microsoft rolled out a fix to the bug and assigned a different KB number, KB 3187022:
'Print functionality is broken after any of the MS16-098 security updates are installed'
If you're running Windows 7, Win8.1, or WinRT, that patch should've appeared last night in your Windows Update queue. But here's the rub. Microsoft didn't release the fix for Windows 10 in any version. Instead, Win10 users are stuck with the bug... Vista users, it seems, aren't in the picture..."

Aug 30, 2016 - "... a discussion on the upcoming changes to our monthly patch releases to align down-level supported operating systems, updating practices to coincide with the Windows 10 Service Model... Beginning in October 2016 onwards, don’t expect to see individual KB’s but instead expect to see the following in the monthly patch release cycle:
1. Security-Only Update:
- Collects all of the security patches for that month into a single update
2. Cumulative Update:
- Security Updates from previous bullet point
- Collective update of all Updates, Rollups, Bug Fixes, and Security Updates
3. .Net Framework Security-Only Update:
- Contains only security updates
4. .Net Framework Rollup
- .Net Framework Security Updates from Previous Bullet Point
- Reliability updates
This change brings up a key question: 'With the new Windows as a Service: Service Model, can we back out a single patch (KB) if it causes issues since they are all rolled up?' The short answer is 'No', you can’t control which KB’s can be applied, so the complete roll up would need to be backed out. But the answer is more complex than a simple no. The point of rollups is to correct the fragmentation caused by systems containing a mix of individual updates. It will not be possible to uninstall specific KB’s of a rollup. If there is a problem the partner will need to open up a case and provide business justification to drive the discussion with Microsoft..."
