Improvements and fixes

This security update includes improvements and fixes that were a part of update KB4103713 (released May 17, 2018) and addresses the following issues:
  • Provides support to control use of Indirect Branch Prediction Barrier (IBPB) on some AMD processors (CPUs) for mitigating CVE-2017-5715, Spectre Variant 2 when switching from user context to kernel context. (See AMD Architecture Guidelines for Indirect Branch Control and AMD Security Updates for more details). For Windows client (IT pro) guidance, follow the instructions in KB4073119. For Windows Server guidance, follow the instructions in KB4072698. Use these guidance documents to enable use of IBPB on some AMD processors (CPUs) for mitigating Spectre Variant 2 when switching from user context to kernel context.
  • Provides protections from an additional subclass of speculative execution side channel vulnerability known as Speculative Store Bypass (CVE-2018-3639). These protections aren't enabled by default. For Windows client (IT pro) guidance, follow the instructions in KB4073119. For Windows Server guidance, follow the instructions in KB4072698. Use this guidance document to enable mitigations for Speculative Store Bypass (CVE-2018-3639) in addition to the mitigations that have already been released for Spectre Variant 2 (CVE-2017-5715) and Meltdown (CVE-2017-5754).
  • Increased the Internet Explorer cookie limit from 50 to better align with industry standards.
  • Improves the reliability of Internet Explorer when using geolocation.
  • Security updates to Internet Explorer, Windows apps, Windows Server, Windows storage and filesystems, Windows wireless networking, and Windows virtualization and kernel.
For more information about the resolved security vulnerabilities, see the Security Update Guide.

I'm also waiting.

The part I don't like is that the network interface controller will / may? stop working, all because the OEM didn't have the proper .inf file?

My OEM machine has gone through 9years of updates with nary a problem and now this? This smells of the "unsupported hardware" barrier of Windows Update.

I usually wait until the following months update is released!
I don't actually install the Monthly Rollup because I install the Security Only Updates, just in case I ever need them they are ready to go so to speak!

I'm going to wait..what else can I do. I don't have time to learn about every Windows 7 update that comes through and if it will effect me or not, so will just wait from now on with all of them.

Thanks for the Thread!

Installed this update KB7284826 and MSRT KB890830, on a 32 bit Win 7 Home Premium PC with AMD processor and on 64 bit Win 7 Pro laptop with Intel processor. All well with no problems.

MS has removed all references to NIC issues on the Security-only update article https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...date-kb4284867
And this month's did sort out the issue I had where last month's update wiped out my wireless Card.

However, they have not removed it from the rollup information, so maybe the issue is still present in this month's rollup?

Either that or MS has simply forgot to remove it. Who knows with MS these days?

So true Brds, who knows? I've never had wireless on my 7box so I took it to mean any network interaction.

I do have my printer setup for both wireless and cable and didn't have the problems you did with that update, but this update sounded more ominous. I'll probably get around to updating in a few days and post how It goes.
