Microsoft is investigating reports that its KB4549951 update for Windows 10, which was distributed via this month's Patch Tuesday release, is causing issues. Bleeping Computer reports some Windows 10 users are reporting Blue Screen of Death (BSOD), Bluetooth issues, and even bricked PCs:
As we have reported last week, users are reporting a wide assortment of issues when installing and after deploying KB4549951, ranging from blue screens of death (BSODs), failures to install, networking issues, display issues, and system freezes when trying to use streaming services.

Others are saying that their Windows 10 installation is completely broken with their devices being unable to boot again after installing the KB4549951 update.
Microsoft says that they have not seen these issues reflected in telemetry, support data, or customer feedback channels, but the company will monitor the situation.
