The January 2023 security update release, referred to as our "B" release, is now available for Windows 11 and all supported versions of Windows 10. We recommend that you install these updates promptly. For more information about the contents of this update, see the release notes, which are easily accessible from the Windows 11 and Windows 10 update history pages. For instructions on how to install this update on your home device, check the Update Windows article. To learn more about the different types of monthly quality updates, see our Windows quality updates primer.

Highlights for the Windows 11 update:
Addresses issues that affect the Local Session Manager (LSM). These issues might allow users who do not have admin rights to perform actions that only an admin can.
Addresses a known issue that affects apps that use Microsoft Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) SQL Server Driver (sqlsrv32.dll) to connect to databases, which might result in connection failures.
