August 2019 regular cumulative update: KB4512508/build 18362.295 #KBAlert


Hi all,


Few important things first:


  • Until the next feature update comes out, KB alerts will discuss changelogs for Version 1903 only.
  • In case you are not seeing a prompt to update to May 2019 Update, chances are that your hardware is ready but you may not realize it. To check, go to Settings/Update and Security/Windows Update. If you see “download and install” link and the label next to it says “Version 1903”, then you are good to go. The usual precautions apply.
  • In regards to Windows/Microsoft Defender definition update, it is now known as “security intelligence update”. The mechanics are the same.


With these out of the way…


August 2019 cumulative update for Version 1903 is now available:
