The database is cumulative: this release includes all previous vulnerabilities and updates.
New FIXED ISSUES affecting these products:
- Windows versions:
- Windows 10
- Windows Sever 2012
- Antivirus applications:
Support was added for several Windows operating systems flavors in Windows Applications 2.1.22 (and subsequent releases). As a result, the names of some of the other Windows operating system flavors in the Windows Version property pane are changed and their checkboxes in the pane might be automatically and undesirably cleared during the upgrade.
This could impact policies that already use the Windows Version property. Therefore, when you upgrade from Windows Applications versions released prior to Windows Applications 2.1.22, make sure to verify that the Windows Version property is still configured correctly.
Windows versions affected by this change:
- Windows 7
- Windows 10
- Windows 2012
- Windows server 2016
- Windows server 2019
