A list of the updates can be found on this Microsoft page. Details about the update packages for Windows, Office etc. are available in separate blog posts.

Servicing Stack Updates

Microsoft now publishes an overview of all current Servicing Stack Updates (SSUs). The list of SSUs can be found at ADV990001  (but is not always up to date).

Notes on the updates

All Windows 10 updates are cumulative. The monthly patchday update includes all security fixes for Windows 10 and all non-security related fixes up to the patchday. In addition to the security patches for the vulnerabilities, the updates contain defense-in-depth updates to improve security.

The updates can also be downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog. The updates for Windows RT 8.1 and Microsoft Office RT are only available through Windows Update.

Information about the support period for Windows 10 can be found in the  Windows Lifecycle Facts Sheet. Internet Explorer 11 will be available on Windows Server 2012 in May 2019. This configuration is only available through the Cumulative Update for IE. This is the last time Internet Explorer 10 receives a security update.

Windows 7 Updates only for ESU customers

Microsoft warns in the following tweet that updates for Windows 7 SP1, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, and Windows Server 2008 SP2 are available for customers who have booked Extended Security Updates (ESU).

I have been emailed by blog readers and there is this comment, hat the updates for Windows 7 etc. are provided in the Microsoft Update Catalog. I haven’t tried it yet because I don’t have Windows 7 running ad-hoc without ESU. But I assume, as in this German comment, that the updates cannot be installed without ESU.
