  • …..annnnnd they are out – Patch Tuesday for May 2021

    Posted on May 11th, 2021 at 13:02 Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    As usual we will be watching for the issues.

    Businesses:  If you are a small to med business with Exchange – you have work again as there’s Exchange bugs being fixed including one that’s been publicly disclosed.

    Consumers and home users – obviously too early to tell if there are side effects this month. All of the documented known issues at this time are “leftoverisms” from prior months or only impact Enterprises. I’ll be starting my personal testing on my spare machines and will report in.

    There are some patches impacting wireless networking and bluetooth that I will be keeping a close eye on to see if they cause any interactions.

    Remember 1909 has reached it’s end of life, when we flip back to Defcon 4, you need to take action to be on 20H2 as soon as the all clear is given.

    While you are in wait and see mode, don’t forget to update your iphones and android phones and tablets. As always let’s be extra careful out here as we wait to see the impact.

    Outlook click to run is the first having issues. Microsoft is aware and investigating. Note I am on the semi-annual channel and not seeing this.
