Applies to: Windows 7 Service Pack 1, Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1



Improvements and fixes

This security update includes quality improvements. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. Key changes include:
  • 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).
  • Security updates to Windows apps, Windows Server, Windows storage and filesystems, Windows wireless networking, and Windows virtualization and kernel.

After last month's fiasco with my wireless card, I restored from a system image and skipped the May security-only update.

Normally I wait a week before installing, but wanted to see if this month's update had fixed the issue.

Made a System image with Macrium.
Installed the IE11 cumulative update first - no reboot.
Installed last month's security update (KB4103712) - no reboot.
Immediately installed this month's, then I rebooted.

So far, I haven't had any issues with wireless card or NIC uninstalling on my other systems, so this update seems to have fixed last month's issue for me. Not sure if it'll work for anyone else with NIC issues though.

But at the Download site the update was still from June 9?

So they changed the documentation but not the actual Update.

Also, I did not get this update. Does this mean that there was an issue with it so was not pushed out to some people until they made a change?

These are the only two I got just today:
2018-06 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4284826)
Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool x64 - June 2018 (KB890830)

You don't get the Security-only updates through Windows update, they're manual install only.

You don't need them anyway if you install the rollups, as the security updates are already included in the rollups.

Some users, including myself, don't install the rollups, they just want the Security updates.

Yes, they updated the issues section to remove the references to NIC issues.

@Brds7t7, Ahhh...thank you Brds! I'm a long way from understanding all this.

Why am I not getting them until now? I have Updates set to "Check but let me download and install".

You mean the Security-only updates? Nobody gets offered those through Windows update anymore, since MS changed the update servicing model for 7/8.1 in late 2016. Only Security updates that were issued before the change are offered through Windows update.

If you're getting the rollups through Windows update then you don't need to worry about the Security-only updates.

I was talking about these, the normal Rollup and MSRT. They came out on the 9th and just getting them today. My computer is on all day every day usually till late at night. What could be the reason, or is this somewhat normal?

Not sure why it says the 9th, I got the Rollup offered to me on the 12th (usual patch Tuesday), before I hid it. Maybe MS releases them on the Update Catalog site a couple days before they're pushed through Windows update.

I wouldn't be concerned about them being offered a
day or two late, it's happened to me before. I have noticed Windows has been a little slower for me this week whilst checking for updates, so perhaps some server issues on MS side. Not 100% sure though.
