Microsoft Windows Security Updates May 2019 overview

Welcome to the Microsoft Patch Day overview for May 2019. Microsoft released security updates and non-security updates for all supported versions of the Windows operating system -- client and server -- and other Microsoft products such as Microsoft Office on May 14, 2019.

Our overview provides you with information and resource links; we cover all major update releases for all Microsoft platforms, provide an overview of critical updates (which you may want to address quickly), operating system distribution statistics, and download instructions.

Microsoft plans to release the May 2019 Update for Windows 10 at the end of the month; check out this guide if you plan to update to the new feature update for Windows 10. If you take the disastrous Windows 10 version 1809 release into account, it is probably better to wait several months before you  consider installing the update on production machines.

Note that there are some upgrade blocks in place currently that prevent the installation of the new update.

How to download and install the May 2019 security updates

windows may 2019 microsoft security updates

Home users may use Windows Update to download and install the updates, or install updates manually by downloading them directly from Microsoft.

It is not recommended to select the "check for updates" option manually on Windows PCs as you may install preview updates or feature updates when you use the option.

If you still want to do so, make sure you create a backup of important data -- better the entire system partition -- before you install updates.

  1. Open the Start Menu.
  2. Type Windows Update.
  3. Click on the "check for updates" button to run a manual check.

Third-party tools like Windows Update Manager, Windows Update MiniTool or Sledgehammer may be useful as well as you get more control over the update processes.

Direct update downloads

Most Windows devices are updated automatically either through Windows Update or other update management systems. Some users and organizations prefer to install updates manually. All cumulative updates can be downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog website. Below are links to all cumulative updates.

    Retpoline works only on Broadwell and older Intel CPUs (I guess for AMD would be anything before Zen?). Right now I think still the best solution is to just disable those “mitigations” on any Windows version and call it a day.
    Interesting to see WinXP receiving updates.

    This is unrelated to the update itself but, say you’ve stopped installing the security updates for 6 months or so.
    If I want to catch up, do you have to install every single months of updates? Or will installing just the latest one suffice?
    The reason why I’m asking this is because I might not be able to use my desktop at all due to going away for awhile.

      Security updates are not cumulative, that is a core difference to Monthly Rollup updates. They may replace some older updates though and you better check each on the Update Catalog website to find out about those unless you plan to install them all one after the other.

      Microsoft defines security-only updates in the following way: An update that collects all the new security updates for a given month and for a given product, addressing security-related vulnerabilities and distributed through Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), System Center Configuration Manager and Microsoft Update Catalog.

        Thank you.
        I guess that it’s best for me to install the latest monthly rollup instead of installing every single one of security-only updates for the each months that I’ve missed.
        One more question: are all the Windows 10 updates are treated as monthly rollup update? They’re only labeled as ‘cumulative’ which, I presume that they don’t offer security-only updates?

      Second the advice to look at each KB and see what’s in it. Security Updates may be standalone, may be contained within a Cumulative Update or may be the same as what is usually considered a Cumulative Update.

      Delta Updates are not done on Win 10 (v.1803 anyway) anymore, stopped in April. A Security Update from April readied 1803 for a smooth update to 1809, hardly a security issue.

      So, either roll the dice and let Windows Update do it for you or look at KB’s one by one. You don’t really expect MS to follow any sort of logic in what they do, do you? :)

    Depends. On Windows 10 there are delta updates from one month to another, and one large update package which will bring a Windows 10 installation from baseline to the current month. If you use that package you will have to install just one update. Windows will know exactlty what to do with that package and only install what is missing

    On Windows 7 there are only delta updates, so you’ll have to install them manually one by one (no reasonable person in all their mind would do this), use Windows Update, or something like Simplix Pack, which is similar to what Microsoft did on Windows 10.

I have no trouble choosing the options in the previous pages, just this last one. (This is true for any .net patches I try to dl.) MS Windows Update Site shows only one and works OK. I just would like to dl and save the updates.

    Win7 pro. 32bit using Security Updates.

    Thank you for the Patch information you give us every month. It makes a hard job easier!

      @GiddyUpGo,

      When you click the d/l button you get a list of the available updates. Each of those is prefixed with a KB number. So just type each of the numbers into the catalog search field. For example, one of them is kb4019990 which will give you this page: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=kb4019990

        *TelV thank you for your reply:
        The page you mention is not the last page for me. After this page when I click on download there is now 4 files with .exe extension and 2 files with .msu extension. This only happens on dl of .net files. All other dl will show only one file to dl.

        I only see one: http://imgbox.com/a71OEdS4

        Can you take a screenshot of what you’re seeing which will give us a better idea of what the problem is.

        @TelV..When I type the download for KB4499406, which .net I need for my w7, I get the below choices. Do you not get the same when you try to dl KB4499406 from Microsoft Update Catalog and select the download of this file? If I use the Windows Update Site, it only shows just one .Net file to install plus the other updates. From Windows Update, I find no way to DL this file, just to install it.

        @GiddyUpGo,

        Well that depends entirely on what you have installed at the moment. If you have all those versions installed, then of course you need all the updates for them.

        If you don’t know which versions you have installed go to Programs & Features in Control Panel and then click the link to “Turn Windows features on and off”. It will tell you in there which versions are installed.

      This is very helpful, it was published here, I think, a while back. Tells you which KB creates a particular version.

    At 17:45 UTC I manually invoked WU to include KB4494441 which seemed to be successful except Windows remained at Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.17763.475]. At 20:45 UTC I manually invoked WU again which installed KB4494441 again, and now Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.17763.503] is correctly in place.

      Also had to install KB4494441 twice (using ‘check for updates’, I know I am living on the edge here… ) before the OS build bumped up from 17763.475 to 17763.503 on two laptops and a desptop running 18.09.

      It’s not as if the article is so dense but you do need to know a bit about what Windows is all about without having to be a nerd. This goes for all the Ghacks articles.

      I tend to agree but not because of the jargon in it, because MS has made updating a confusing and often destructive mess.

    The cumulative update on my 1809 is two times better than yours, it installed twice. I am now two times more secure and my computerspeed has doubled. I also now have two internets. After restarting the first time I saw a black screen with a big white text on the bottom that said: updating 100%, which I have never seen before, it was of course because it updated my post-BIOS blackscreen to a new and better one, which is now more black and much more startuppier than before. I hope 1903 has this new amazing feature as well, or maybe they could even TRIPLE everything in that version.. fingers crossed!! I’m so happy, I fart rainbows.

      Ah, I see … another connaisseur of Italian parsley (Petroselinum crispum neapolitanum) with flat leaves.

      By the way, do you use sage, rosemary and thyme for the colors?

      For sounds, I prefer Cubeb pepper. Similar to black pepper, but with a distinct eucalyptus note and lemony nuance. On top of that, Cubeb pepper gives your farts a spicy-refreshing, menthol-like aroma.

      Any other suggestions … ?

    Trust Microsoft to screw it up again. The link in the ghacks article to .NET Framework KB4495589 update correctly loads the appropriate KB article, but the link to the update catalog in that article just reloads the same page again. Same goes for KB4495615 needless to say.

    Easy enough to find the links, but you’d think M$ would check these things before publishing them.

    Anyway, thanks for all the hard work Martin.

    After the Windows Update KB4494441 was claimed to be installed, I clicked on the KB4494441-link in your above message.
    I was routed to Windows Update Catalogue. I clicked download the appropriate package, downloaded it and clicked to install (at that time I was not aware that it seemingly already was installed through WU). It installed, taking quite some time. Later I found that KB4494441 seemed to be installed through WU. So I now had 2x successfully installed KB4494441 ??!!. When I clicked the downloaded KB4494441 again, it reported that it already had installed.
    So the first installation through WU seems to be failed, despite WU reporting a success ??!!

    When I click in the link in KB4494174 — 2019-05 Update for Windows 10 Version 1809 (Intel microcode updates), I find nothing. So KB4494174 seems not to exist.
    When I then search for microcode updates for W10 1809 I find KB4465065 (april 2019) in Windows Update Catalogue. When I download the appropriate package and click to install, it installs. So obviously my PC did not have this microcode update despite a successful WU-may ??!!

      the KB4494174 update for v1809 does not exist – Microsoft still has not released it and it’s already close to mid-June

    Yep I got the May update installed twice too. KB4494441 I believe it was I guess its yet another bungled month of patches for Microsoft.

    Did Sophos and/or Microsoft ever work out a solution to last month’s Patch Tuesday’s massive problem? The one where Windows 7 users with Sophos Endpoint Security and Control who install the updates might make the system unbootable? (I don’t use Sophos but the institution my dad works at imposes it on him.) I know that “Google is my friend,” but what I found at Sophos’s site made my brain hurt when I tried to read it. (It was late.) I’ll give it another shot in a few days…

    As for this month’s updates, as usual I’m going to wait for real-world fallout to transpire before updating *any* system I administer — with “security-only” patches alone, and *not* via Windows Update, naturally.

    Since the updat to my Samsung NP355V5C with W7 64 bit the Wireless LAN driver no longer works and trying to reinstall always fails. Have tried removing the driver in safe mode and reloaded the driver but it still fails. Have only found that doing a restore before the update works but then the update is offered again and fault repeats.

    After reading CVE-2019-0708, I was wondering.

    Do I need to install both the “monthly rollup” update and “security only” update to protect my system?
    Or am I protected with just the “monthly rollup” update installed on my system?
