  • September 2021 Office non-Security Updates are now available

    Posted on September 7th, 2021 at 14:38 Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    The September 2021 Office non-Security updates have been released Tuesday, September 7, 2021. They are not included in the DEFCON-4 approval for the August 2021 patches.
