New Windows update intentionally breaks some Bluetooth devices

Version 1903 getting a CU as well How to stop Windows 10 sharing updates with your internet connection

Bluetooth has become an incredibly popular tool for connecting devices, whether it's the best smartwatches or the best wireless headphones.

The new security update arrives in a number of Windows cumulative updates, including the update for June 2019.

Right now, all Windows 10 users with computers which have no compatibility issues can install the latest version by manually check for updates using the Windows update dialog.

A vulnerability in the SymCrypt cryptographic library of Microsoft's OS can trigger a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) disruption in Windows 8 servers and above, causing a perpetual operation "when calculating the modular inverse on specific bit patterns with bcryptprimitives!SymCryptFdefModInvGeneric", according to Tavis Ormandy, a Google researcher.

The security update isn't breaking Bluetooth connections on accident, though. Remove all external media, such as USB devices and SD cards, from your computer and restart installation of the Windows 10, version 1903 feature update.

Exactly how many devices might be borked by the update is unclear, and it appears that the only way to find out is if your Bluetooth accessory stops pairing.
