Microsoft Releases Mysterious Windows 10 Patch KB4033637, Refuses to Share Info

Microsoft has silently published Windows 10 update KB4033637 for computers running the Anniversary Update (version 1607), but contrary to the company’s typical approach when rolling out new patches, it hasn’t included a knowledge base article to explain what the new release actually does.

And what’s worse is that a company employee has made the whole thing even more uncanny after offering a totally unexpected answer when someone asked about the purpose and the contents of the update.

“May we know why you’re asking?” Microsoft’s Michelle Vil replied to a user who turned to the Microsoft Community forums in search for more information on update KB4033637.

While it shouldn’t be a surprise for the company’s staff that network and system administrators in charge of hundreds or thousands of machines aren’t willing to install updates on Windows 10 devices unless they know exactly what they do, Microsoft is yet to provide any information on the mysterious update, despite the first inquires for a change log were posted online on July 24.
