Microsoft Releases Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 Updates with Known Memory Leaks and Stop Errors

Microsoft is beginning to make its April 2018 Patch Tuesday security updates available for customers. But, there’s at least a couple caveats already that customers should be aware of going in to this month’s testing.

Microsoft has outlined a couple known gotchas for updates for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1:

  • After you install this update, SMB servers may leak memory.
  • A stop error occurs on computers that don’t support Streaming Single Instructions Multiple Data (SIMD) Extensions 2 (SSE2).

 

Both of these problems exist in KB4093118 (Monthly Rollup) and KB4093108 (Security-only update).  Microsoft says that it is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
