TLS connections might fail or timeout
Updates for Windows released October 8, 2019 or later provide protections, tracked by CVE-2019-1318, against an attack that could allow unauthorized access to information or data within TLS connections. This type of attack is known as a man-in-the-middle exploit. Windows might fail to connect to TLS clients and servers that do not support Extended Master Secret for resumption (RFC 7627). Lack of RFC support might cause one or more of the following errors or logged events:
  • "The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure Channel"
  • SCHANNEL event 36887 is logged in the System event log with the description, "A fatal alert was received from the remote endpoint. The TLS protocol defined fatal alert code is 20.​"
Affected platforms:
  • Client: Windows 10, version 1903; Windows 10, version 1809; Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019; Windows 10, version 1803; Windows 10, version 1709; Windows 10, version 1703; Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2016; Windows 10, version 1607; Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2015; Windows 8.1; Windows 7 SP1
  • Server: Windows Server, version 1903; Windows Server, version 1809; Windows Server 2019; Windows Server, version 1803; Windows Server, version 1709 ; Windows Server 2016; Windows Server 2012 R2; Windows Server 2012; Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1; Windows Server 2008 SP2

Next Steps: Connections between two devices running any supported version of Windows should not have this issue when fully updated. There is no update for Windows needed for this issue. These changes are required to address a security issue and security compliance. For information, see KB4528489.

Unable to create local users in Chinese, Japanese and Korean during device setup
When setting up a new Windows device using the Out of Box Experience (OOBE), you might be unable to create a local user when using Input Method Editor (IME). This issue might affect you if you are using the IME for Chinese, Japanese, or Korean languages.

Note This issue does not affect using a Microsoft Account during OOBE.

Affected platforms:
  • Client: Windows 10, version 1909; Windows 10, version 1903; Windows 10, version 1809; Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019; Windows 10, version 1803; Windows 10, version 1709
  • Server: Windows Server, version 1909; Windows Server, version 1903; Windows Server, version 1809; Windows Server 2019; Windows Server, version 1803; Windows Server, version 1709
Workaround: To mitigate this issue, set the keyboard language to English during user creation or use a Microsoft Account to complete OOBE. You can set the keyboard language back to your preferred language after user creation. Once the OOBE is done and you are at the desktop, you can rename the current user using these instructions. If you prefer to create a new local user, see KB4026923.

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

Certain operations performed on a Cluster Shared Volume may fail
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.

Affected platforms: 
  • Client: Windows 10, version 1809; Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019; Windows 10, version 1803; Windows 10, version 1709; Windows 10, version 1703; Windows 10, version 1607; Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2016; Windows 10, version 1507; Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB 2015; Windows 8.1
  • Server: Windows Server, version 1809; Windows Server 2019; Windows Server, version 1803; Windows Server, version 1709; Windows Server 2016; Windows Server 2012 R2; Windows Server 2012
Workaround: 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. 
Next steps: Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
