Microsoft has confirmed that the recent security update KB5004237 set was released on July 13, causes printing problems on some systems when trying to use smart cards for user authentication.
This time, along with the printing problems, the scan on some systems does not work.
According to the company from Redmond, the cumulative update KB5004237 of 13 July solved some printing problems on printers that were connected via USB. However, it seems that the same update also caused a new error as a result of the changes made to address the vulnerability CVE-2021-33764.
The new problem is with Domain Controller servers used for authentication requests.
Smart card printing may fail, and according to Microsoft:
After installing updates released on July 13, 2021 on Domain Controller Servers (DCs) in your environment, printers, scanners, and multifunction devices that do not comply with RFC 3.2.1 section 4556 may not print during the use of smart card authentication (PIV).
