Microsoft has started deploying a bunch of new Windows 10 updates, as part of the final Update Tuesday rollout for the year. Technical Preview users are recommended to install them.
The full details of all that’s new in Update Tuesday December 2014 are available here.
But even though Windows 10 is still in the development stage, the fact that millions have deployed the preview version means that it is vulnerable to attacks. Redmond obviously wants to keep all these users on the safe side, hence these new security fixes.
But users that have deployed the Technical Preview should see an Internet Explorer patch, as well as fixes for Microsoft Office and a few other software products.
Microsoft is, obviously, now working on the next build of Windows 10, which probably will be released to the public via the Windows Insider program next month. The focus is on there, as build 9879 is set to remain the last refresh for the year.
There are problems that may get fixed before the next build comes around, so expect new patches for the operating system in the weeks to come.
