Microsoft has just released a new patch for the Windows 10 November 2019 Update (version 1909) to address a WPA3 Wi-Fi connectivity issue. The bug is affecting some devices running the build 18363.1377 released two days ago, as well as the previous build 18363.1350 released on January 21.

This new patch will appear as the build 18363.1379 (KB5001028) in Windows Update. According to Microsoft, the bug is pretty serious and can make certain devices stop working and displays a blue screen when users attempt to use a Wi-Fi Protected Access 3 (WPA3) connection.

Even though the Windows 10 November 2019 Update is now over a year old, it was still running on 31.2% of Windows 10 PCs in AdDuplex’s latest survey from last month. Microsoft recently announced that the May 2020 Update is now ready for broad deployment, the November 2019 Update will be supported until May 2022 so you don’t have to hurry to upgrade.
