Microsoft Removes Security Update For Windows 10 After Users Report Issues

It was intended to address a security vulnerability affecting third-party Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) boot managers

Microsoft has removed a standalone security update from its Windows update after confirming user reports about freezes, boot problems, and installation issues.

The security update, KB4524244 was released on Feb 11, 2020, as part of the normal Patch Tuesday release cycle, and was targeted for all Windows 10 versions via Windows Update, the company said on Saturday.

It was intended to address a security vulnerability affecting third-party Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) boot managers.

“The standalone security update has been removed due to an issue affecting a sub-set of devices. It will not be re-offered from Windows Update, Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) or Microsoft Update Catalog,” the company said in a statement.
