  • Ongoing list of problems with the February 2020 Patch Tuesday patches

    It’s a bumper crop — not only 99 separately identified security holes getting plugged, but a whole lot of unexpected fixes.

    • Win7 free patches (including, unexpectedly, a new Malicious Software Removal Tool)
    • Win7 paid patches (Microsoft tossed in a ringer to clog up the works)
    • A Win10 UEFI patch directed at a specific manufacturer – but which one?
    • A horrible, Chicken Little “exploited” IE JScript security hole

    And a whole lot more.

    Still much, much too early to see if there any big bugs.
