The KB5006670 update for Windows 10 is in the wild. Here are the direct links to download KB5006670 offline installer.
This is that time of the week again. Though Microsoft missed the last patch Tuesday, it released a new cumulative update for Windows 10 users running v21H1, v20H2, and v2004 versions. Since all three versions are pretty similar with only minor feature changes, the same cumulative update applies to all. Unlike the regular maintenance cumulative updates, KB5006670 is a security update. As such, it is recommended that you install it as soon as possible to make sure your system is up-to-date in terms of security.
The KB5006670 update mainly fixes an issue where the Microsoft Exploit Protection for Export Address Filtering feature is causing some applications like Microsoft Office and Adobe to crash or freeze with a Not Responding message. If you recently saw a lot of crashes or program freezing, you might have to install the KB5006670 update to fix the problem.
Being a mandatory update, the KB5006670 update will be automatically installed on all supported systems. If needed, you can go to the “Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update” page and click the “Check for updates” button. If the update is available to your system, Windows 10 will automatically download the KB5006670 update and install it.

After downloading, you can install the update like any other Windows software. i.e., double-click on the executable and follow the wizard.
