Windows 10 and Windows 11 receive a new patch

The Redmond giant has released a new patch for Windows 10 and Windows 11 that, as of the date it arrives, becomes the Tuesday December patch. This patch is available for all versions of Windows 10 that are still supported, but not for those that have completed their cycle. It is important that you keep this in mind, because if you are using a version that is no longer supported, you will not be able to install this patch.

The update for Windows 10 and Windows 11 should already appear as available, and it is identified as KB5008212 and as KB5008215, respectively (the first nomenclature corresponds to Windows 10, and the second to Windows 11). To install this update, in case it has not been installed automatically, you just have to go to Windows Update and look for the available updates.

This new patch for Windows 10 and Windows 11 is curious because, unlike what we have seen on other occasions, Microsoft has not included specific details in its notes. The Redmond company has limited itself to indicating “Various security improvements and internal workings of the operating system”. This amounts to a generic description that is nevertheless quite illustrative, as it indicates that Microsoft has improved the security and stability of the system.

For now no problems found associated with this patch for Windows 10 and Windows 11, which means that, in theory, after its installation there should not be any type of conflict or serious problem. However, keep in mind that this does not mean that the patch is absolutely free of errors, since these could be discovered later.

I remind you, before finishing, that this patch is available for Windows 10 versions 2004, 20H2 and higher. If we have an older version, we will not be able to install it (unless we use a variant that is still supported). In the case of Windows 11, we only have the release version, so in this case there is nothing to qualify. We must also not forget that this update represents the end of support for Windows 10 2004, so we should be thinking about updating if we still use that version.
