Windows 10 users: UPDATE NOW! Certificate validation is broken! (NSA: Critical Vulnerability Advisory issued)

Download the KB manually?

If not, try this:

or if that doesn't work:

I used the update assistant to go to 1909 and used systeminfo command to check since the update wiped out my update history.

systeminfo | find “KB”
in cmd.exe in case anyone else wants to check.

Thanks for the heads up op. I have checked updates on both of my and my friends laptops and it seems to be automatically updated.

Man I'm really glad it finished updating when it did because like 15 minutes after I updated Win 10 my internet crapped out and it's still not back lol

Effing Christ, automatic updates are turned off on my work machine and so I had a bunch to install along with this. One of them killed my headphone output. Did the auto troubleshoot and now it doesn’t detect any sound devices at all. Fuck me.

Edit: Fixed, installed the latest sound driver.
