      Quick. While it’s still July 12. Take a look at the Microsoft Catalog and see how many entries have a “Last Update” entry of July 13.

      Maybe someone’s set the date reference to a different landmark/timezone…?

        Or maybe Microsoft needs to stop calling these “Security and Quality Rollups”

        “Security and Poor Quality Rollups” anyone?

        Yeah,I wondered if it was a UTC timestamp, but I don’t recall seeing a mass change like that.

        Checking again this morning (US time), I see the stamps haven’t changed .. and I have no idea what happened.

        I think time travel of patches is the most probable cause..

            While I like a good old “Time Travel” theory, I am going to go with “Plausible denial” conspiratorial take.

      Given the quality of the patches, Friday 13th seems to be the appropriate date.

        Regarding the issue of the networking bugs:  A support case was opened and the word came back that this primarily impacts those with virtualization/VMware.  If you aren’t running that, you won’t be impacted.  VMware is a virtualization platform.

        I’ve called them a few things this week already, none of which are permitted in this forum 😛

      Interesting… I cannot remember the last time I trusted a Microshaft patch.

      Running Windows 8.1 & it’s after 4:30 AM Central time. I checked Windows Update via Control Panel & via the PC Settings app under Update and recovery. Anything not Windows Defender, Silverlight & KB3080109 is dated 07/09/18 in the app. In Control Panel, they’re dated 07/10/18. Will check both later today to see if they change to 07/13/18. BTW, I’m on Group A, so I usually don’t download from the Microsoft Catalog. Not looking now… because I trust Woody!

      P.S.: I trust Susan the Patch Lady too. What she said…

      I’m not running VMware or Hyper-V, I’m on Windows 8.1 Home.

      Since it’s Friday the 13th you know something will go wrong with these updates.

        Yeah, and MS will assume they have a good excuse.

      All Tuesday’s patches were re-dated to July 13, except .NET 4.7.2 and Office

      never saw such mass date revision before
      maybe they heard the complaints abouts dates not matching actual release dates 🙂

      Maybe these July 13th patches will install perfectly, in a sort of reverse-Friday-the-13th scenario.  MS patches have worked so poorly every other day.  Maybe these patches are the ones that will install perfectly on this day only.

      Then again, maybe someone has already disproved this theory.

      Huh, I’ve been offered KB4056254 and KB4023057 in addition to the feature update, Flash security update and MSRT. I think they’re annoyed I keep blocking 1803. 😛

      Windows 7 Group A. As of 10:20 am this morning all of the patches I’m offered in WU (July rollup, .net rollup, msrt) are all still dated July 10th with only the msrt being checked for download & install. I have hidden the .net 4.7.2 update and kb2952664.
