MS16-072 – Don’t install this update

Yesterday Microsoft released a new security patch: KB3159398 which appears to be wreaking havoc for Systems Administrators everywhere

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/ms16-072.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

The update is supposed to fix a vulnerability in Group Policy that allows standard users to access elevated privileges but instead seems to be be preventing any group policies not user filtered by “Authenticated Users” from applying at all

For more information on this keep and eye on Reddit or Microsoft TechNet

Hopefully Microsoft can fix this issue quickly and release a new update
