Yet another patch Tuesday is here, and Microsoft released a new Windows 10 update for all supported versions. This new update is named KB5014699. This is purely a security update. That means it doesn’t contain any other improvements or general fixes.
In this update, there is one major security fix. It is of the Escalation of Privilege vulnerability type. If you don’t know, Escalation of Privilege is a severe vulnerability where the attacker exploits a bug, enters your system, and gains elevated access (administrator access). Once the attacker has elevated access, they can do almost anything.
Being a security update, it is mandatory to install the update. In fact, on all supported systems, the KB5014699 update should be installed automatically. If not, use the link below to download KB5014699 offline installer. After download, double-click on the downloaded file and follow the on-screen wizard.

Addresses an elevation of privilege (EOP) vulnerability under CVE-2022-30154 for the Microsoft File Server Shadow Copy Agent Service. To become protected and functional, you must install the June 14, 2022 or later Windows update on both the application server and the file server. The application server runs the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS)-aware application that stores data on the remote Server Message Block 3.0 (or higher) shares on a file server. The file server hosts the file shares. If you don’t install the update on both machine roles, backup operations carried out by applications, which previously worked, might fail. For such failure scenarios, the Microsoft File Server Shadow Copy Agent Service will log FileShareShadowCopyAgent event 1013 on the file server.
That is it.
