    Microsoft delays its usual Patch Tuesday updates

    In case you were expecting patches today...

    Hopefully they will at least release a patch for the SMB flaw, but more likely, they'll release it with the Monthly rollup and Security updates.

    “We will deliver updates as part of the planned March Update Tuesday, March 14, 2017.”
    So the vulnerability was bad enough that they didn't want to release the February updates, but they want to wait a whole month to release the patch?

    I've given up trying to figure out MS updates. (And apparently so has Microsoft)
    Don't believe everything you think.

    Unless the problem was with the security update for the SMB flaw, they should have released that update separately. They are not saying what the problem was though.

    I’m speculating that the delivery mechanism for the patches has somehow broken down
    As slow as it has been, to get updates from the servers, bet the whole farm needs updating.

    Took me less time to build AntiX 17-a2 than it did to get SP1 for Win 7.
