  • Patch Lady – so where’s the Server patches?

    Posted on March 8th, 2018 at 01:58 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    As a follow up to Woody’s “where the Windows 7 32bit patch updates” remember there are a couple more missing in action:

    As noted in this post, we’re still missing Server 2008 and Server 2012 updates.  In case it helps all of you Windows 7 32 bit folks to know that you are not alone.


    Q3: Why aren’t Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2012 platforms getting an update? When can customers expect the fix?

    A3: Addressing a hardware vulnerability by using a software update presents significant challenges, and some operating systems require extensive architectural changes. Microsoft is continuing to work together with affected chip manufacturers to investigate the best way to provide mitigations.
