BSOD KB5000802/808 Update –

Update 3-11-2021 7:27am – Microsoft has confirmed this issue.

When printing to a Kyocera printer, the Windows 10 update KB5000802 may cause a blue screen error citing win32kfull.sys as the failure point.

We have had at least one customer to call in with this issue. KB5000802 was released on 3/9/2021 by Microsoft and is a security update so it was likely automatically pushed to many endpoints. The blue screen error occurs upon printing, usually to a Kyocera printer.

The current fix is to uninstall this specific update and pause Windows updating for 7 days. We can execute a PowerShell script to automatically remove this update from your endpoint if you are experiencing this issue and your endpoint has our endpoint manager agent installed. Another fix reported is to switch to Microsoft PCL 6 printer drivers, but we have not confirmed this as an effective work around.

This may also effect other printers such as Ricoh, Zebra and others.
