        Hello fellow askwoody members,

        When do you think will Woody announce MS-DEFCON 3?
        I’m pretty new to the WSUS stuff and don’t want to make any mistakes, so I’m relying on askwoody.com and the sysadmin subreddit.

        There are still lots of problems as I can tell, but I’d want to update soon if possible.

        Woody assesses the problems, and when he thinks it is safe to update, he moves the DEFCON number and publishes instructions in an article in ComputerWorld.

        As to when that is, try a crystal ball 🙂 .

          It’s all a turkey shoot. Just a feeling, having covered Windows updates for 14 years…

        as most of September patches seem ok.
