  • February 2020 Office non-Security Updates have been released

    Posted on February 4th, 2020 at 13:49 PKCano Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    The February 2020 non-Security Office updates have been released Tuesday, February 4, 2020. They are not included in the DEFCON-3 approval for the January 2020 patches. Unless you have a specific need to install them, you should wait until Susan Bradley (Patch Lady) approves them and any problems have been reported.

    Remember, Susan’s patching sequence and  recommendations are based on a business environment that has IT support and may have time constraints on the updating process. Consumer patching should be more cautious due to limited technical and mechanical resources. The latter is the reason for the AskWoody DEFCON system.

    Update for Microsoft Word 2016 (KB4484249)
