It is a culture/ traditional thing: Windows has to break a few things with each update.
Much like a knight on a chessboard: x2 squares forward and one to the side...the Night of Os's.

People are still surprised at Win10 breaking stuff?

This isn't breaking, this is them blocking a vulnerability they found until they fix it.

So they discovered the vurnability then decided to disable these devices entirely but made sure not to inform users thereof, you know so they can be inconvenienced and possibly unable conduct their business.

Why do they deliberately hide the fact that the update will disable these devices? This should be highlighted before the update is installed.

Because the ignorant will avoid the patch and whinge about Microsoft when their crypto is stolen.

Well yes, however this vurnability was reported by Google 10 months ago, Microsoft has still done nothing to patch it.
