  • Problem with Visual Studio 2015 update KB 4456688

    This from poster @deuxbits:

    2018 August 18 Microsoft released a security update to Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 to deal with CVE-2018-0952 and CVE-2018-8273. The update can be found in their update catalog under KB4456688.

    We’ve applied this update on some canary machines to find out if there is any impact before a general rollout… Unfortunately this security update renders VS2015 virtually unusable – if you try to run your code in debug mode it is super super slow. Don’t know if anyone else has seen this problem. Wanted to let you guys know that MS seems to have botched yet another patch.

    Anybody else seeing this problem?
