Today (08/12/2020) is the second Tuesday of December, which means it’s time for a new series of Patch Tuesday updates that Microsoft regularly releases as part of the monthly security updates for all supported Windows devices. And in December 2020, Microsoft released monthly security updates KB4592438 (OS build 19041.685 and build 19042.685 for the latest versions of Windows 10 20H2 and 2004) and KB4592449 (OS build 18362.1256 and build 18363.1256) and KB4592440 (OS build 17763.1637) for devices running Windows 10 versions 1909 and 1903 or 1809. Again, these are just security patches and updates, no new features.
Tuesday’s updates are cumulative updates that generally contain only small patches and security fixes.
Download Cumulative Windows 10 Update
All these security updates are automatically downloaded and installed on your device with Windows Update. If your device has not yet received any open settings, you should update them and check for updates. Then restart the device to apply the updates.

The latest version of Windows 10 from Microsoft 20H2 and 2004, receives the cumulative update KB4592438, which contains the versions 19041.685 and 19042.685. According to the company, Windows 10 KB4592438 improves security when using Microsoft Edge Legacy and Microsoft Office products.

KB4592449 for Windows 10 1909
Devices with Windows 10 version 1909, November 2019 update, get the new cumulative update KB4592449, which is dated 18363.1256 and contains security and unsecurity fixes. Here is the full changelog of the Microsoft blog
Pay attention: Updates for Windows 10 November 2019 and possibly 2019 share a common operating system kernel and an identical set of system files, so KB4592449 also applies to Windows 1909 and 1903 versions.
Windows 10 versions 1909 and 1903 get the same fix as KB4592438 (applies to Windows 10 versions 20H2 and 2004).
