February’s Patch Tuesday will be in MarchPosted on February 15th, 2017 at 21:05 Comment on the AskWoody Lounge
At least, that’s what the MSRC team notification on the TechNet blog says:
UPDATE: 2/15/17: We will deliver updates as part of the planned March Update Tuesday, March 14, 2017
My previous kvetch holds true. There’s no mention about whether this only applies to Windows (Vista, 7, 8.1, 1507, 1511, 1607), or if it also includes Office, .NET, IE and so on.
There’s some concern about the SMBv3 zero-day that I mentioned on Feb. 3. It’s still out there and active. CERT has published manual steps for thwarting the vulnerability.
I have a roundup of the history and the problems on InfoWorld.
By the way, Gunter Born doesn’t think Windows Update is broken, and he offers some powerful arguments in that direction in his latest blog post.
