[German]Another addendum from last week. Microsoft has released some Intel Microcode updates for Windows 10. The updates were released last week on the regular patchday.
The colleagues from German site deskmodder.de had mentioned it in this article last week, but were not sure what was really updated. Meanwhile, people on Twitter have pointed me to the microcode updates for Windows 10.

Maybe someone could use it. For Windows 10 V1903 I don’t know any microcode update for August 2019. Hints for activating registry entries can be found in the article Microsoft Security Advisories/Notifications June 2019.
