Microsoft Patch Tuesday in May 2022 was not particularly lucky: after the release of the update , some users of Windows 11 (which can be found on Amazon for only € 19 in DVD version) began to complain of problems in using the system operating. More precisely, according to what has been reported in the course of the last few hours, the update would bring with it a serious bug that involves the revelation of the much feared Blue Screen of Death in some specific cases.
Windows 11: Sophos users affected by BSOD after Patch Tuesday in May
The news was given by Sophos , a company that produces antivirus, which communicated that some of its customers who use Windows 11 were precisely affected by the BSOD in a sudden way after downloading the update released by the Redmond group on the occasion of Patch Tuesday in May.
Sophos explains that the problem would be due to an incompatibility of Windows 11 KB5013943 , that is the post-Patch Tuesday version of the operating system, with drivers generally used in some specific antivirus. This incompatibility would be very serious, as it would not involve the simple closure of the antivirus, but even the BSOD of the OS, in fact.
Below, in translated form, is the statement made by Sophos in this regard.
Our customers who have Windows 11, who use Sophos Home and who have Update KB5013943 installed may encounter a BSOD or a Stop Error, which would cause the machine to reboot.
At the moment, the only known solution to try to deal with this situation is to uninstall the latest OS update or Sophos programs and drivers that are incompatible with the May 2021 Patch Tuesday update.
