Fresh Mandatory Windows Update May Bring Printing and Scanning Issues

Microsoft has confirmed that July’s traditional monthly “Patch Tuesday” update for the Windows operating system was not without problems.

Mandatory security update KB5004237, among other things, fixed printing problems when connecting printers via USB. However, the same update brought new issues in this area, which were a consequence of the fixes made to fix the CVE-2021-33764 vulnerability. Printing and scanning problems can occur with printers, scanners, and multifunctional devices when smart cards are used to authenticate users.

The problem is observed in these versions of Windows:

Windows 1021H1, Windows 1020H2, Windows 102004, Windows 10 1909, Windows 10 1809, Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019, Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2016, Windows 10 1607, Windows 10 Enterprise 2015 LTSB, Windows 8.1, Windows 7 SP1
Windows Server 20H2, Windows Server 2004, Windows Server 1909, Windows Server 1809, Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows Server 2008 SP2

Microsoft notes that the developers are already investigating the issue and will provide an interim fix soon. Microsoft advises affected users to update the appropriate drivers and firmware, in consultation with the device manufacturer if necessary.
