Microsoft Recalls Another Windows SSU In February

Microsoft recalled another Windows SSU update — the second time in a week. Manual intervention was required to restore full OS functionality.

Microsoft Recalls Windows SSU Twice

For the second time in a week, Microsoft recalled another Windows SSU update. Earlier this week Microsoft released KB5001078 as a replacement for KB4601392.

Now Microsoft have recalled yet another Windows SSU update KB4601390 replacing it with KB5001079. The two replacements appear to have the same symptoms where Windows 10 security updates would effectively hang during the installation before reaching 30%, meaning a manual intervention was needed to restore operating system functionality.

What are Servicing Stack Updates?

Servicing stack updates provide fixes to the Windows servicing stack — the fundamental component that installs Windows updates. It also contains the “component-based servicing stack” (CBS), which is a key underlying component for several elements of Windows deployment, such as DISM, SFC, changing Windows features or roles, and repairing components.

Servicing stack updates improve the reliability of the update process to mitigate potential issues while installing the latest quality updates and feature updates. If you don’t install the latest servicing stack update, there’s a risk that your device can’t be updated with the latest Microsoft security fixes.
