  • This month’s “optional, non-security, C/D Week” updates are rolling out

    I see 12 new patches in the Microsoft Catalog. Notably KB 4541331 for Win10 1809. There’s nothing out for Win10 version 1903 or 1909, which is common – those usually come later.

    The Win 8.1 Monthly Rollup Preview, KB 4541334, doesn’t seem to include anything except the by-now-familiar:

    Addresses an issue with evaluating the compatibility status of the Windows ecosystem to help ensure application and device compatibility for all updates to Windows.

    In other words, you don’t need it or want it.

    No acknowledged bugs as yet.

    I don’t see anything for Win7.

    Of course, we’re at MS-DEFCON 2: There’s no reason to install any of the March patches yet.

    P.S. If you’re running an Exchange Server and haven’t yet installed the February patches, you’re in for an unpleasant surprise. Catalin Cimpanu at ZDNet has details of an active attack.
