Microsoft re-releases Windows 10 KB4589212 update for v20H2 and v2004

Windows 10 KB4589212 update

On Tuesday evening, Microsoft once again started rolling out
Windows 10 KB4589212 to devices running version 20H2 and
version 2004. According to the official documentation, some
users who have automatic updates enabled will see KB4589212
when checking for updates.

KB4589212 is an Intel microcode update and it first appeared in
November 2020 when the update package was refreshed for Windows
10 version 20H2. Microsoft noted
that the microcode patch is rolling out to PCs with 10th-gen
Intel CPUs, but previous reports have suggested that it could
also show up on non-Intel hardware.

Microsoft said that in most cases, the new microcode update
would be made available for download through built-in Windows
Update page. The company also noted that users should consult
with the manufacturer or Intel before manually installing the
update.

Intel January 2021 microcode update for Windows 10

Intel January 2021 microcode updates will mitigate against the
latest security flaws. Hopefully, this update won’t lead to
unwanted performance side-effects caused by the company’s last
big security release.

Microsoft also appears to to be adhering to its promised use of
Windows Registry entries to block Windows 10 patches. This
means the patch won’t show up if you’ve blocked Windows Update
using Registry Editor.

In addition to version 20H2 and version 2004, another patch is
rolling out to desktops with version 1909, 1903 and older.
Those using older CPUs and Windows 10 versions will have to
wait a bit longer to receive these security updates and there’s
no word yet on when they will arrive.

Remember that you can always use Windows Update history to see
a list of updates installed on your device in case you want to
check if KB4589212 is installed. To do this, open Settings >
Update & Security > Windows Update and click on ‘View update
history’ link.

At the end of January or early February, Microsoft is also
planning to release an optional cumulative update to address
general bugs and issues in the operating system. This patch is
expected to fix
Windows 10 KB4598242 issues, such as Blue Screen of Death
errors, reboot loop and other bugs.
