The KB5009543 security update is out now for all Windows 10 users running the latest builds. Here are the direct links to download KB5009543 offline installer.
After a brief “no updates” period due to Christmas and New Year events, Microsoft finally released a new update for all Windows 10 users running v20H2, v21H1, and v21H2 versions. Unlike the regular cumulative updates, KB5009543 is a security-only update. That means the security doesn’t contain any additional improvements, feature updates, or non-security patches.
As for the security fixes, the KB5009543 update fixes an issue with Active Directory where the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is causing problems when making multiple attribute changes. Additionally, Microsoft also fixed some problems with the Japanese Input Method Editor.
Other than that, the patch also updates the servicing stack which is responsible for several Windows functions like Windows Updates, features, etc.
All in all, being a security update, it is recommended that you install it as soon as possible to ensure no vulnerabilities are present in your system. In theory, the update should cause any problems because it doesn’t contain any new non-security features or improvements.

This issue affects the Microsoft Japanese IME and third-party Japanese IMEs.
That is it.
