Version:

Security-only update

Summary

Learn more about this security-only update, including improvements, any known issues, and how to get the update.

IMPORTANT On May 19, 2022, we released an out-of-band (OOB) update to address an issue that might cause machine certificate authentication failures on domain controllers. If you haven’t installed the May 19, 2022 or later releases, then installing this June 14, 2022 update will also address that issue. For more information, see the Before installing this update section in this article.

IMPORTANT Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 have reached the end of mainstream support and are now in extended support. Starting in July 2020, there will no longer be optional, non-security releases (known as "C" releases) for this operating system. Operating systems in extended support have only cumulative monthly security updates (known as the "B" or Update Tuesday release).

For information about the various types of Windows updates, such as critical, security, driver, service packs, and so on, please see the following article. To view other notes and messages, see the Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 update history home page.

Improvements

This security-only update includes new improvements for the following issue:

  • Printing to a NUL port from a Low Integrity Level (LowIL) process application could cause printing failures.

  • Addresses an elevation of privilege (EOP) vulnerability under CVE-2022-30154 for the Microsoft File Server Shadow Copy Agent Service. To become protected and functional, you must install the June 14, 2022 or later Windows update on both the application server and the file server. The application server runs the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS)-aware application that stores data on the remote Server Message Block 3.0 (or higher) shares on a file server. The file server hosts the file shares. If you don’t install the update on both machine roles, backup operations carried out by applications, which previously worked, might fail. For such failure scenarios, the Microsoft File Server Shadow Copy Agent Service will log FileShareShadowCopyAgent event 1013 on the file server. For more information, see KB5015527.

For more information about the resolved security vulnerabilities, please refer to the new Security Update Guide website and the June 2022 Security Updates.

Known issues in this update

Symptom

Next step

Certain operations, such as rename, that you perform on files or folders that are on a Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) may fail with the error, “STATUS_BAD_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL (0xC00000A5)”. This occurs when you perform the operation on a CSV owner node from a process that doesn’t have administrator privilege.

Do one of the following:

  • Perform the operation from a process that has administrator privilege.

  • Perform the operation from a node that doesn’t have CSV ownership.

We are working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

After installing this update, Windows devices might be unable to use the Wi-Fi hotspot feature. When attempting to use the hotspot feature, the host device might lose the connection to the Internet after a client device connects.

This issue is addressed in KB5015877.

After installing this update, Windows Servers which use the Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS) might be unable to correctly direct Internet traffic. Devices which connect to the server might not connect to the Internet, and servers can lose connection to the Internet after a client device connects.

This issue is addressed in KB5015877.

How to get this update

Before installing this update

For machine certificate authentication considerations, do one of the following:

  • Install this June 14, 2022 update on all intermediate or application servers that pass authentication certificates from authenticated clients to the domain controller (DC) first. Then install this update on all DC role computers.

  • Or, pre-populate CertificateMappingMethods to 0x1F as documented in the Registry key information section of KB5014754 on all DCs. Delete the CertificateMappingMethods registry setting only after the June 14, 2022 update has been installed on all intermediate or application servers and all DCs.

    Note Adding, modifying, or removing the CertificateMappingMethods registry setting does not require a device restart.

We strongly recommend that you install the latest servicing stack update (SSU) for your operating system before you install the latest Rollup. SSUs improve the reliability of the update process to mitigate potential issues while installing the Rollup and applying Microsoft security fixes. For general information about SSUs, see Servicing stack updates and Servicing Stack Updates (SSU): Frequently Asked Questions.

If you use Windows Update, the latest SSU (KB5014025) will be offered to you automatically. To get the standalone package for the latest SSU, search for it in the Microsoft Update Catalog

REMINDER If you are using Security-only updates, you will also need to install all previous Security-only updates and the latest cumulative update for Internet Explorer (KB5011486).
