Windows 7, 8.1 patches are upPosted on January 10th, 2017 at 13:05 Comment on the AskWoody Lounge
OK, not exactly. Other than MSRT, there are no patches for 8.1, and only one small security patch (plus a Flash patch) for Win7.
This month only we’re getting old-fashioned Security Bulletins (such as they are) plus the new Security Updates Guide.
MS17-001 for Edge only – “important” (which means it isn’t really important)
MS17-002 – Word 2016 and SharePoint Enterprise 2016 – critical
MS17-003 – Flash Player but only on 8.1 and 10 – critical
MS 17-004 – Only on Vista and Win7 – important
January 10, 2017—KB3212642 (Security-only update)
This update includes only security fixes. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update.
January 10, 2017—KB3212646 (Monthly Rollup)
Includes the Security-only update above, plus the non-security stuff in last month’s Dec. 13 Monthly Rollup.
“There are no security fixes or quality improvements for release on January 10, 2017. As such, there is no Security-only update nor Monthly Rollup release for this month.”
That’s the lightest Patch Tuesday I’ve ever seen.
Reminder: We’re still on MS-DEFCON 2. Wait to see what happens to everybody else.
