Microsoft Postpones February Security Updates to March


SonicWall has worked closely with Microsoft to provide real-time protection to our customers. Recently Microsoft had announced that February patches will be delayed “due to a last minute issue that could impact some customers”. Microsoft must have considered all options and chosen the best approach.

Back in November 2016, Microsoft announced overhaul of Patch Tuesday. The new system is scheduled to go online this month, and we are not sure if these two incidents are related. Hope Microsoft can fix the root problem ASAP that it won’t affect future security releases.
