  • February’s Patch Tuesday will be in March

    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.
