New Windows 10 Low Key Upgrade Causes High Profile Problems

Problems with KB4540673 are getting worse. In a new report, Windows Latest states that multiple users are now facing audio problems (particularly with older sound cards) and uninstalling the update, rolling back to an older version of Windows and reinstalling drivers does not fix it. In addition to this, KB4540673 is resulting in a user profile bug which causes Windows 10 to load a temporary user profile when booting up.

Users have been able to log back into their original profiles and remove the temporary account, but it’s an irritating fault which also has a depressing sense of deja vu. Beyond these, there are also isolated cases of Internet connectivity problems, freezes and app crashes being reported. Back to the drawing board with this one, Microsoft.

Important additional update news today (via BleepingComputer) with Microsoft announcing it has patched a critical Windows 10 vulnerability in Microsoft Server Message Block 3.1.1 (SMBv3). The update – KB4551762 – patches “a network communication protocol issue that provides shared access to files, printers, and serial ports.” It is rolling out to Windows Update now but can also be manually installed via the Microsoft Update Catalog.

“We recommend that you apply this update to your affected devices with priority,” states Microsoft with the company noting that no real world exploits have been developed, though with the problem now out in the open that will be only a matter of time.

The exploit, known as SMBGhost or EternalDarkness, affects 1903 and 1909 versions of Windows 10 and Windows Server. Edit: following the Bleeping Computer report, there is an excellent analysis of the problem from Davey Winder here.

Axians became a Cisco HCS customer

A VINCI Energies brand, offers its customers in various markets a comprehensive range of ICT solutions and services spanning business applications and data analytics, enterprise networks and digital workspaces, datacenters and cloud services, telecommunications infrastructure and cybersecurity.

Axians became a Cisco HCS customer in 2015, providing cloud collaboration services to its network of customers. At the time of purchase, Axians’ Cisco HCS platform was managed by Cisco Unified Communications Domain Manager (CUCDM). Over the next 3 years, Axians successfully grew its HCS platform, offering UCaaS to customers across the Netherlands.

cisco communication manager:

In 2018, when Cisco announced the end of life for CUCDM, Axians took the decision to transition away from CUCDM, with the aim of addressing two critical factors:

Axians wanted to reduce the level of manual administration on its Cisco HCS platform by introducing higher levels of automation
Axians was keen to integrate its Cisco HCS platform into other business systems to offer a richer suite of UC services in a more seamless way
After evaluating other products on the market, Axians chose to transition from CUCDM to VOSS-4-UC.

To address Axians’ desire to improve the levels of automation in its HCS platform, VOSS introduced flow-through provisioning which automates the process of user provisioning by synchronizing users and their UC services with data provided by a customer LDAP server. With flow-through provisioning, VOSS can automate many of the manual MACDs that Axians had been carrying out on behalf of its customers, improving time to resolution and increasing customer satisfaction.
