    [ Known issues:
    MS16-072 changes the security context with which user group policies are retrieved. This 'by-design' behavior change protects customers’ computers from a security vulnerability. Before MS16-072 is installed, user group policies were retrieved by using the user’s security context. After MS16-072 is installed, user group policies are retrieved by using the machines security context. This issue is applicable for the following KB articles:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3159398 - MS16-072: Description of the security update for Group Policy: June 14, 2016
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3163017 - Cumulative update for Windows 10: June 14, 2016

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3163016 - Cumulative Update for Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 5: June 14 2016
    Symptoms: All user Group Policy, including those that have been security filtered on user accounts or security groups, or both, may fail to apply on domain joined computers.
    Cause: This issue may occur if the Group Policy Object is missing the Read permissions for the Authenticated Users group or if you are using security filtering and are missing Read permissions for the domain computers group.
    Resolution: To resolve this issue, use the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC.MSC) and follow one of the following steps:
    Add the Authenticated Users group with Read Permissions on the Group Policy Object (GPO).
    If you are using security filtering, add the Domain Computers group with read permission. ]

    Qualys Analysis: https://blog.qualys.com/laws-of-vuln...soft-and-adobe
    July 12, 2016 - "... 11 security updates that affect a host of desktop and server systems. Six updates are categorized as Critical while the rest are categorized as Important. All critical updates released today affect desktop systems. Top priority should be given to fixing browsers and Office which includes MS16-084 that affects Internet Explorer, MS16-085 which affects Microsoft Edge and MS16-088 for Office. All three updates fix vulnerabilities that allow an attacker to take complete control of the victim’s machine and therefore these should be patched immediately... Adobe Reader is back after being dormant for three months. Adobe has released APSB16-26 which fixes 30 vulnerabilities on Windows and Mac platforms. Many vulnerabilities fixed by APSB16-26 allows an attacker to take complete control of the victim machine and we recommend applying patch for this critical issue as soon as possible. This is the third Acrobat Reader fix in 2016 while the count of Adobe Flash is more than double. Adobe has also released an update for its Flash Player – APSB16-25 which fixes -52- vulnerabilities... we recommend applying the Flash and Reader update immediately..."

    Excel Workbooks may not open after installing MS16-088
    - https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/...ling-ms16-088/
    "... Update 7/28/2016
    Update: Our dev team is working on options to preserve security and assist customers with their workflow. Currently we do not have any further workarounds.
    Additional background: The security update changed how Excel handles documents that are opened from untrusted locations (such the Internet zone) which are not supported in Protected View, such as HTML/XML/XLA files. Opening them without Protected View has led to a security vulnerability, and therefore files open from such locations are now blocked. We realize this breaks compatibility with some existing solutions, and are working on getting these file types supported with Protected View. Until that happens, users will need to manually trust the file before they open them in Excel, as demonstrated in one of the workaround suggestions. Excel can still open these files without an issue if they are trusted.
    We strongly recommend against removing the security update..."
