Microsoft pushes a new security update for Windows 10 build 10240 that can be considered as the first update of the new services model for the operating system.

Microsoft rolls out a new update for Windows 10 as the operating system gets ready for general availability on July 29th. With Windows 10 close to completion, the work won’t stop, as Microsoft has previously announced that is moving to Windows as a Service model. This means that the work to improve the operating system is an ongoing process, and now the software giant is announcing a small update (KB3074665) to address a few bugs and patch several security wholes.

The latest update is available immediately, and it will download and install automatically, but you can always go to Windows Update using the Settings app to install the update manually.

Here is Microsoft Gabe Aul Tweets on the topic:

While Windows 10 won’t be out until July 29th, the operating system has already been reported as RTM, which if it’s true, this means that KB3074665 could be considered as the first update, Microsoft is releasing on the new Windows as a Service model.
