    Current advice about key Windows patches this month from Susan Bradley Patch Lady.

    Notes for the month of May:

    Be aware — if you are seeing RDP issues post patch Tuesday the underlying issue is that there is a mismatch between patch levels. The updates for the RDP/credssp came out in March and slowly Microsoft has been adjusting the mandate of the update. In may the full “you much have a patch on both ends” kicked in. So if you haven’t updated your servers, but your workstations got patched you’ll see this: https://www.askwoody.com/…/problems-with-credssp-updates-c…/ While there is a registry key to allow patched systems to connect to unpatched systems, it’s much wiser to patch your servers. Note that if you held off because of the networking side effects these were patched in the April updates.

    May updates also include a fix for the “Double kill” vulnerability that was used in active attacks against IE earlier this month.
