A list of all updates may be found at this Microsoft page. I’ve derived the details below from this page.

Update KB4054517 for Windows 10 Version 1709

Cumulative security update KB4054517 for Windows 10 Version 1709 (Fall Creators Update), released December 12, 2017, contains quality improvements and fixes some issues, documented below:

  • Updates Internet Explorer’s default visibility for the button that launches Microsoft Edge.
  • Addresses issue where Windows Defender Device Guard and Application Control block some applications from running, even in Audit-Only Enforcement Mode.
  • Addresses issue to reset PLC bit on U0/U3 transitions.
  • Addresses issue with personalized Bluetooth devices that don’t support bonding.
  • Addresses issue where the touch keyboard doesn’t support the standard layout for 88 languages.
  • Addresses issue where the touch keyboard for a third-party Input Method Editor (IME) has no IME ON/OFF key.
  • Addresses additional issues with updated time zone information.
  • Addresses issue where, when using System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM), the user can’t copy or clone virtual machines (VM). The error message is “0x80070057- Invalid parameter”. This issue affects the VMM UI and PowerShell scripts used for VM cloning and copying.
  • Security updates to the Microsoft Scripting Engine, Microsoft Edge, and Windows Server.

Details about the security issues may be obtained from Security Update Guide. This update changes Windows 10 to build 16299.125. Microsoft is not aware of know issues.

I found a few hits in forums, claiming the download hangs at 95%, the installation stalls or blue screens are obtained after install (here and here). But it may be single incidents, and I recommend uninstalling third party antivirus products and/or executing Windows 10 update troubleshooter. Here some users reporting issues installing the pending Defender update.

The patch is distributed via Windows Update, but may also be downloaded via Microsoft Update Catalog.

Note: Microsoft has also released update KB4056342 for Windows 10 Mobile on December 12, 2017, which changes the OS-Build to version 15254.124.
