After a wait of 54 days to get Windows 10 Technical Preview build 10041 out to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring it looks like Microsoft is now delivering that same build to those Insiders who opted into the Slow Ring for their updates after just an additional six days.
That release, according to our Windows Insider Ring Master Gabe Aul, will be pushed this afternoon and so that also means ISO's for installing build 10041 of the technical preview will become available shortly. If you are in the Fast Ring for updates you will soon be able to do a fresh install of build 10041 if you want to with those ISO's.
As of this posting those ISO's are not yet linked on the Windows Insider site.
Shortly before Gabe shared the news of build 10041 to the Slow Ring folks he also tweeted about three updates that have been released for the Windows 10 Technical Preview build 10041 on Windows Update.
This security update resolves a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows that facilitates exploitation of the publicly disclosed FREAK technique, an industry-wide issue that is not specific to Windows operating systems. This vulnerability could allow a man-in-the-middle (MiTM) attacker to force the key length of an RSA key to be downgraded to EXPORT-grade length in a TLS connection. Any Windows system that uses Schannel to connect to a remote TLS server by using an insecure cipher suite is affected.
