Microsoft rolls out a new cumulative update for Windows 10 and a couple of security updates to address vulnerabilities in Microsoft Silverlight and Adobe Flash Player. The cumulative update for Windows 10 is described as KB3081436 brings bug fixes and improvements to the overall functionality of the operating system.
