Patch C for Kaspersky Internet Security version 21.3.10.391 was released on June 3, 2021. 

Confirmed at https://support.kaspersky.com/15595#21.3.10.391c 

 

Today is 10 June and I didn’t get it through KIS update!!! Update is working fine but there is no indication a new patch had been fetched from K-lab servers. 

 

Did you get Patch (C)? Is it rolling slowly? 

 

Thanks for sharing and responding.

Is Patch (C) rolling out slowly? 

Hello @Moody
Welcome!

  • Version & patch updates are released in staggered distributions. 
  • A patch release start date does not mean the patch will arrive on every computer, across the globe, on that day. 
  • Some patch release cycles may last 4 to 6 weeks. 
  • Version update cycles may last even longer. 
  • After a patch arrives, to apply the patch, make sure the computer is fully shutdown & restarted. 

Thank you:pray_tone3:

@Moody hi

Patches and also builds are released gradually because it depends on region.

The word “Patch” in software development means an update for newly discovered critical malfunction or vulnerabilities. Such Patch has to be developed and deployed quickly, before someone can take advantage of using these vulnerabilities.

K-Lab saying  in release notes that Patch (C) has fixes to some vulnerabilities, so we, who use KIS, are actually using a software has vulnerabilities that can be exploited by anyone, like hackers. 

Any get the Patch so far? If Not, what K-Lab waiting for? To be hacked through a software designed to protect us from hacks? 

This is very weird!!!

 what K-Lab waiting for? 

 

Welcome. 

Kaspersky is checking  for eventual issues and also watching this Forum  ,  and  then gradually rolling out the Patch  globally.

 

I have Kaspersky Security Cloud Free 21.3.10.391 (b) - I installed the Global one - and Windows 10 Pro 21H1 with all updates (including optional ones) installed, running on a Dell Inspiron 14R 5421 with i7.

According to this Kaspersky support page, Kaspersky Security Cloud is already at 21.3.10.391 (c) since June 3, 2021 and this new patch c version fixes and improves several things. However, as much as I keep trying to update my KSC Free and rebooting my system, it seems to be stuck at patch b.

So my question is: Why it takes so long for my Kaspersky Security Cloud Free to get these nice new version upgrades?

I’ve also been noticing that KSC Free seems to slow down Windows Update quite a bit, so I was hoping that the new version might improve that too.

Thanks for reading. Any help & clarification is much appreciated!

So my question is: Why it takes so long …

This question has been asked a lots of times in this Forum, before distributing the Patch globally Kaspersky first proceeds with a throttled rollout to check for eventual issues.

Thanks for the explanation.

 

It would be nice if we had some option to manually install the latest patches/versions before their arrival to our place in these cycles.

Also it would be nice if there was an option to know as soon as possible if we have to reboot in order to install a new patch/version (instead of just guessing or waiting several days).

These are my suggestions to Kaspersky, hope they get noticed.

 

About KSC Free and Windows Update: since I bought an SSD,  my manual updating with Windows Update improved quite a bit in its speed (I disable Windows Update automatic updating), however I notice (by using Task Manager) that KSC Free consumes quite a lot of resources when I’m manually updating my system with Windows Update sometimes - can’t this be an indication of some conflict, and that KSC Free slows down Windows Update?
