[German]In addition to the patch day updates (October 11, 2017), Microsoft has released also update KB4023057 for some Windows 10 machines. Here are some details.
I didn’t notice the update at all, but blog reader Andreas R. reported here that this update arrived on October 13, 2017.
KB4023057 is a reliability update that was rolled out on October 5, 2017 for Windows 10 version 1507 (RTM), version 1511 (November 2015) and version 1607 (Anniversary Update). However, only certain builds of Windows 10 versions 1507,1511 and 1607 require this update.
Microsoft probably determines which devices are affected by their telemetry data – but does not disclose any details. If such a device is identified, the update is automatically downloaded and installed via Windows Update. This update includes reliability improvements that affect the update components in Windows 10 Versions 1507, 1511, and 1607.
