Microsoft Windows 8.1 Update Suspended

Windows 8.1 Update, which is a big patch of Redmond OS Windows 8.1, was suspended for some corporate users after the company discovered that patched systems can not receive future updates from the servers Windows Server Update Services (WSUS). The patch updates the user interface for the users of the sensor and the mouse, but it seems to have a problem in working with corporate networks.
The problem arises when clients connect to WSUS enabled HTTPS, but without TLS 1.2. Machines based on Windows 8.1 has been updated, weighing 2919355KB will no longer be able to receive future updates from these servers. Microsoft says that the problem lies in the WSUS 3.0 SP2, also known as WSUS 3.2, which runs on Windows Server 2003, 2003 R2, 2008 and 2008 R2; this version has no HTTPS or TLS 1.2 enabled by default, but is part of the recommended HTTPS configuration. 4 WSUS on Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2 also technically affected, but since Windows Server allows you to use TLS 1.2 by default, it is not a big problem.
Microsoft will have to come up with ways to correct in the shortest time for Windows 8.1 Update, which is a mandatory security update and will be a prerequisite for all future security fixes in OS 8.1. At the moment, one of the problems is that if the client machines are installed updates, administrators should be allowed to use TLS 1.2 on Windows Server 2008 R2 or disable HTTPS.
