9 patches from MS for August Patch Tuesday

This is the August Advance Notification bulletin about the Microsoft patches which are due on the next patch Tuesday on 14th August 2007.

On the security updates list there are 6 critical updates and 3 important ones. One of the updates is for Office, and is deemed critical for Office 2000 but only important for Office 2003 (and interestingly also Excel viewer 2003).

What’s really odd is this bit:

Non-Security, High-Priority Updates on MU, WU, WSUS and SUS

For this month:

  • Microsoft is planning to release four non-security, high-priority updates on Microsoft Update (MU) and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS).
  • Microsoft is planning to release two non-security, high-priority updates for Windows on Windows Update (WU) and Software Update Services (SUS).

Yes, that’s right, despite saying that SUS was now definitely end of life as of 10th July it looks like they are still releasing patches for it to use. Even back in January they were releasing some patches through MU and WSUS only (not WU and SUS). Maybe they found too many people were simply not getting patched properly.
