I am seeing chatter about the Oct cumulative update causing BSOD issues in Win10.... and it looks like KB4041691 has already been pulled/expired/replaced

This one talks specifically about 1703

This one talks about 1607

What I've been reading about the BSOD situation is that it is caused by a duplicate of updates being pushed through WSUS. That seems to be the source of the problems. People not using WSUS should be fine.

None of the CVE links work for me! I get "CVE ID Not Found".

Since the CVE links are invalid, why isn't there a link provided to each Microsoft KB, or at least list the Microsoft KB #?
