A NEW December Update


A

Alan

Hi all,

Because of the discussion in other threads about some people not getting
December's MSRT -- which I HAD gotten when I manually updated on Tuesday --
I decided to go to the Windows Update just now and run a Custom Scan.

In addition to the latest Window Defender definition being offered --
KB915597 (Definition 1.49.369.0) -- there is another critical update being
shown: Security Update for Windows XP (KB954600).

When I click on more details for this update, here's the information that's
given:

I just downloaded and installed it without any problems, but the December
releases sure have been a bit weird. :->

Hi Alan...That is the one that first failed me on tuesday, then about 5
minutes later, it came in. Only off thing I got about midnight today, was the
MRT. I checked a little while ago to see if there was anything else lurking,
but guess I have them all now.

Thanks again, and have a nice day. :)

Hi Tim,

It wasn't in my download history from Tuesday's downloads on the Windows
Update site, so I took it today. :->

I don't know what's going on. Nothing I see about 954600 says anything
other than rev 1.0. dated December 9.

Sometimes a patch will be re-released with different detection logic when it
is realized that it needs to be applied to more boxes--but I don't see any
indication of that so far.

if ms has problems why not just hold up on everything and re-release on the
next day

My guess would be that because of pressure on the servers, somehow that one
got missed on Tuesday, and things have lightened up and you got it today. I
am surprised that if you are on AutoUpdate it didn't come in overnight,
though.
