  • March 2021 Office non-Security Updates are now available

    Posted on March 2nd, 2021 at 19:11 Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    The March 2021 Office non-Security updates have been released Tuesday, March 2, 2021. They are not included in the DEFCON-4 approval for the February 2021 patches. Unless you have a specific need to install them, you should wait until Susan Bradley (Patch Lady) approves them and any problems have been reported.

    Remember, Susan’s patching sequence and recommendations are based on a business environment that has IT support and may have time constraints on the updating process. Consumer patching should be more cautious due to limited technical and mechanical resources. The latter is the reason for the AskWoody DEFCON system.
