        I couldn’t find the Security patches for May 2020 for Office 2010. Can anyone help?

        Hi to Everyone on the AskWoody Lounge!

        I’m pretty much a ‘newbie’ here (so be gentle) but have been following the AskWoody website for a few months now with great interest.

        Having checked today, I found the article about the latest Office Updates being released and noted the last paragraph:

        Security updates for all supported versions of Microsoft Office are released on the second Tuesday of the month (Patch Tuesday).

        Is it just me or is there some hidden background to the ‘second Tuesday of the month’ as technically it falls next week on June 9?

        Thanks in advance for any clarification.

          Microsoft releases the Security updates (designated “Important“) for Windows, Office, and some other MS products on the second Tuesday of each month, hence, “Patch Tuesday.”

          Updates released at other times are non-Security optional install updates, meant mostly for testing of upcoming changes, or “hotfixes” and out-of-band patches to correct an immediate urgent problem.

        Hi PKCano,

        Thank you for the prompt response.

        Just to clarfiy my own situation; I am using Office Professional Plus 2019 where I keep updates disabled and only run once a month (at the same time as Windows Update based on the current MS-DEFCON rating).

        Today, prior to re-enabling Office updates my Build was 12730.20250 (May 04).  The Build is now 12827.20268 (June 02) and according to this link: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/officeupdates/monthly-channel-2020 shows that there were two other Builds inbetween for May 04 and 12.

        Should I have updated Office today or should I be checking for updates much sooner?

        Thanks in advance of your response.

          The Office non-Security updates listed in this thread are for the .msi (perpetual) versions of Office that are updated through Windows Update. The DEFCON system applies to those updates released through WU.

          Office 2019 is updated through Microsoft and does not get it’s updates through WU. However, it is always a good idea to wait a while after release to see if there are problems (unless there is a vulnerability being currently exploited). So running the update periodically after the release is a good precaution.

          I have a similar setup as the anonymous Guest of post 2268981, and today (June 6)  I enabled my Office 2016 Retail C2R to update, and now have v2005 12827.20268 (June 02).  When I look at the Office Update History this version is listed for Office 365, but the latest version for Office 2016 C2R is v2004 12730.20352 (May 21).  Am I to assume that somebody at MS is still out to lunch?

        These updates just installed themselves on my 1809 build even though I have metered connection enabled on my Ethernet adapter. First time ever that that setting hasn’t been respected by Windows Update.

          Are you running a ‘click-to-run’ version of office … ie. Office 365 or Office 2019?  Those versions update outside of the the traditional windows update system, and I’ve found they may not follow the Windows Update settings

          My Office 2019 updated to 12827 as well … it looks like MS still hasn’t gotten around to updating their web info
