KB5010342 is out with a lot of fixes and improvements. Here are the direct links to download KB5010342 offline installer for Windows 10 users.
Another patch Tuesday, and Microsoft released another brand new update for all Windows 10 users. More specifically, the KB5010342 update is released for users running versions v21H2, 21H1, and v20H2. If you are running any of these, the KB5010342 update applies to you. Unlike the general cumulative updates, KB5010342 is a security-first update. That means the update doesn’t contain any general improvements or non-security bug fixes.
The primary security fix in this update is an issue that causes lightweight directory access protocol to fail during modifying operation if it contains the SamAccountName and User AccountControl attributes. In addition to that, the update also includes several other minor security fixes that are not significant enough to get a place in the Microsoft Update changelog.
You can always download the KB5010342 offline installer from the official Microsoft catalog website. That being said, on most eligible systems, the KB5010342 update should be downloaded and installed automatically. If it did not work for any reason, you could use the link below to download the KB5010342 offline installer.
