The new security update KB5026361 is now live for Windows 10 users running v20H2, v21H2, and v22H2. This is a mandatory update with several fixes and improvements to Windows 10.
This update fixes an issue with the Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) and prevents Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS) from becoming unresponsive. Additionally, the KB5026361 update also addresses various other issues, including printing problems for mobile device management (MDM) customers, signing into Windows Hello for Business using a PIN, keyboard layout resetting, and the Microsoft Edge WebView2 causing infinite loops during process restarts.
