Microsoft Windows 11 and 10 December 2021 Cumulative updates: What’s New

Microsoft Windows 11 and Windows 10 December 2021 cumulative updates are now available for users of PCs with either of those operating systems. December 2021 Patch Tuesday update provides at least 67 security patches, seven being critical, that address some known issues in internal OS features.

These fixes address Denial of Service, Elevation of Privilege, Remote Code Execution, Information Disclosure, and Spoofing vulnerabilities. They include at least six zero-day vulnerabilities as well as non-security fixes for Windows 10 version 2004 or later.

Furthermore, on Windows 11, users are getting a new emoji to support the MicrosoftFluent design. Updates are usually rolled out automatically but if that does not happen you can check the availability of updates by going to the Settings app and selecting the Windows Update option at the bottom right.

On Microsoft Windows 10, users of versions 2004, 20H2, 21H1, and 21H2 will get the update as package “KB5008212” bringing the build versions to 19042.1415, 19043.1415, and 19044.1415 depending on the Windows 10 version. However, this will be the last update released for Windows v2004 users, and Microsoft recommends that users upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10.

Windows 11 users have an update package “KB5008215” that raises it to the build version 22000.376. This update also comes with security patches as well as other improvements to known bugs such as file explorer app fixes and taskbar icon animations. Other fixes include issues with Bluetooth audio and the Start menu. Other fixes include performance issues of the HDD or SSD drive lag.
