October 2016 Windows cumulative updates might cause SCOM 2012R2/2016 console to crash on all OS Versions

Updated article 17.10.2016:

This is just a short note that you should be careful installing the October 2016 cumulative Windows updates KB3194798/3192392/3185330/3185331 on Windows Server releases from 2008R2 up tp 2016 and Windows client releases from 7 up to 10 with the SCOM 2012/2012R2/2016 console installed on it.

It might happen (in fact it will most certainly) that the console crashes regularly after the Patch installation.
