        I am trying to determine whether or not to approve patches from July.  There’s a blurb on the master patch list page that July is safe to install, but the master patch lists do not include

        KB4507461 (2019-07 Security Only Quality Update for Windows Server 2008 for X64-based systems) date 2019-07-09

        KB4507459 (2019-07 Cumulative Update for Windows Server 2016 for X64-based Systems date 2019-07-09

        KB4480730 (2019-07 Update for windows 10 version <build> for all [X86|X64] based systems)  Six total – build 1803 x86, build 1607 X64, build 1709 X64, build 1803 X64, build 1709 X86 and build 1703 X86.  Date 2019-08-03

        4480730 would appear to be a re-release of an update from January 2019, best I can see, but I see nothing discussing the pluses or minuses of installing it

        4507461 is tagged “critical” but there’s no mention of it in any of the recent master lists.

        4507459 also has no mention in any of the recent master lists.


        Does anyone have any insight on these updates that would help me to decide whether or not to approve them for install?

        My bad I have the 2008 R2 patch listed instead of 2008 Sp2.  I’ll fix.  Go ahead and install.


        KB4507459 (2019-07 Cumulative Update for Windows Server 2016 for X64-based Systems date 2019-07-09  Came out on 7/16, not 7/9.     That’s the preview for the following month, skip it and either do for july or jump over to 4512517 for August.  I tend to keep my machines up to date and thus don’t see this.  If it’s offered to you, either install it or review what build version you are on and use the ISO process to update to a newer feature release.  same comment as the first, I accidentally put in the 2008 R2 KBs. I’ll fix.  Not tracking any issues.  I have that listed (at least it’s in the 9/2 version I’m looking at).  But it’s the preview update/optional and thus you can skip it. Doesn’t bring new security patches to the table and the bug fixes are in the August KB4512517

        Oddly, the pdf of the 9/2/2019 windows 10 list I downloaded this afternoon does not have KB4507459, unless search is broken in Adobe Reader DC (nothing surprises me any more.) (of course I do not include the KB…)

        Searching the excel file also came up empty on 4507459 and I just now downloaded it before entering this sentence…

        Your reply gave me all I need on that, so no biggie.

        Thanks so much for all you do, by the way.  It’s a big time-saver when you’re doing patch management for multiple companies to have a resource like your lists to help decide what approval status to put on each patch.
