This security update includes quality improvements
Apr 12, 2019 12:22AM PDT

Nice post with full information, here are also some of the updates.

This security update includes quality improvements. Key changes include:

Provides protection against Spectre Variant 2 (CVE-2017-5715) and Meltdown (CVE-2017-5754) for VIA-based computers. These protections are enabled by default for the Windows Client but disabled by default for Windows Server. For Windows Client (IT Pro) guidance, follow the instructions in KB4073119. For Windows Server guidance, follow the instructions in KB4072698. Use these guidance documents to enable or disable these mitigations for VIA-based computers.
Addresses an issue in which netdom.exe fails to run, and the error, “The command failed to complete successfully” appears.
Addresses an issue that may cause authentication issues for Internet Explorer 11 and other applications that use WININET.DLL. This occurs when two or more people use the same user account for multiple, concurrent login sessions on the same Windows Server machine, including Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and Terminal Server logons.

Addresses an issue that may cause a compound document (OLE) server applications to display embedded objects incorrectly if you use the PatBlt API to place embedded objects into the Windows Metafile (WMF).

And Also Problems for Users of Avira, Sophos, and Arcabit
Apr 12, 2019 12:54PM PDT

For users of Windows 7 which have installed either KB4493448 (Security Only) update or the full KB4493472 (Monthly Rollup) please be aware of the "Known Issues" mentioned in the link provided below and the post above:

Microsoft is working with the affected antivirus companies to find a fix. At this point, I've only updated to the Monthly Rol-lup on one computer using Windows 7/Avira and it did not experience any freezes. Still, I've decided to wait to update any Windows 7 machines until a fix is found.

Hope this helps.
