  • Microsoft calls off Patch Tuesday

    As far as I know, this is unprecedented.

    MSRC just posted a blog that says we won’t have Patch Tuesday today.

    This month, we discovered a last minute issue that could impact some customers and was not resolved in time for our planned updates today.

    After considering all options, we made the decision to delay this month’s updates.

    Don’t know about you, but I think that’s great. Better to be a day or two – or even a week – late, than to send out bad patches.

    It’s not clear to me if this includes Windows, Office, Internet Explorer, .NET and other patches. We’ll find out in a few hours.
