The issue, as you may remember, was preventing cloud apps like Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Outlook from their normal work, and also was affecting VPN connections.
The released updates are not available via the Windows Update as of this writing. The user has to download them manually from the Microsoft Update Catalog. Microsoft noted:
