As we reported earlier today, Microsoft had to release emergency patches for all supported versions of Windows 10 to fix a critical vulnerability in Internet Explorer 11. The company has now done the same today for the latest Windows 10 19H1 build 18305, and Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring can now download the cumulative update build 18305.1003.
Hello Insiders! For those in the Fast ring, we've released a small update that will bring your device to build 18305.1003. For details on this change, please see the information in the blog here: https://t.co/NRZxK8CLtA Thank you!

This cumulative update brings a single fix for this remote code execution vulnerability in Internet Explorer. The Redmond giant said today that this security flaw is already being used in targeted attacks, so we’re glad to see that the company hasn’t forgotten about Windows Insiders.
If you haven’t installed it yet, the 19H1 build 18305 brings a lot of new features including Windows Sandbox, a redesigned Clipboard history, a new header in the Settings app, and much more. This is the last Insider build Windows Insiders we’ll see this year, but the upcoming 19H1 update for Windows 10 already looks pretty promising.Further reading: build 18305, build 18305.1003, Windows 10, Windows Insider
