August 2017 Security Updates

Release Date: August 08, 2017

 

The August security release consists of security updates for the following software:

  • Internet Explorer
  • Microsoft Edge
  • Microsoft Windows
  • Microsoft SharePoint
  • Adobe Flash Player
  • Microsoft SQL Server

Please note the following information regarding the security updates:

  • Windows 10 updates are cumulative. The monthly security release includes all security fixes for vulnerabilities that affect Windows 10, in addition to non-security updates. The updates are available via the Microsoft Update Catalog.
  • Starting in March 2017, there will be a Windows 10 1607 delta package that contains just the delta changes between the previous month and the current release.
  • Updates for Windows RT 8.1 and Microsoft Office RT software are only available via Windows Update.
  • In addition to security changes for the vulnerabilities, updates include defense-in-depth updates to help improve security-related features.
  • After May 9, 2017, customers running Windows 10 version 1507 will no longer receive security and quality updates, with the excecption of the Windows 10 2015 LTSB and the Windows 10 IoT Enterprise 2015 LTSB editions. Microsoft recommends that customers running other editions of Windows 10 version 1507 that are no longer supported should update your devices to the latest version of Windows 10. For more information see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 4015562.

Patch Watch: August’s Follow-Up Fixes
> http://windowssecret...ollow-up-fixes/
Aug 22, 2017 - "I have a phrase I often use with technology: Keep the children on the playground the same age. This means -not- mixing older-and-younger groups; they have different skill levels and abilities. The same goes for .NET 4.7, applications and Windows 7. If you dig into various locations on the web you will see post install side effects such as the following:
    Impacting Autocad and earlier versions as noted in a forum[1]
1] https://www.cadnause...tocad-pre-2017/
    .NET 4.7 crashing Quickbooks as noted on a blog[2]
2] http://www.intuitive...s/#.WZO9HLpFw2w
    Possible issues with Arcgis Pro[3]
3] https://geonet.esri....eaks-arcgis-pro
    May have issues with touchscreen inputs as notes in this post[4]
4] https://www.reddit.c...2dp&sh=376b604f
    Techsmith Snagit impact with .NET 4.7 as noted in this forum[5]
5] https://www.reddit.c...2dp&sh=376b604f
I’ll be investigating and see if the 4.7 update is the trigger for these issues but in the meantime if you are impacted and want to block .NET 4.7 you can use a registry key as noted on the Ghacks site.[6]
6] https://www.ghacks.n...7-installation/
... What to do: Consider -blocking- .NET 4.7 on older operating systems.
Windows 10 1607 Side Effects: The release of 4034658 to Windows 10, version 1607 release had a few noticeable side effects: Naming it wiped-out-your-update-history. As an alternative, to see which quality updates have been applied, you can navigate to the inventory by going to Control Panel -> Programs -> “View Installed Updates.” In addition, the update had additional-side-effects of making any hidden updates pop back up again. So if you hid the 1703 update it -will- offer back up again. Finally in a network setting, WSUS servers will exhibit increased CPU, memory, and network utilization when Windows Update clients perform their first scan after installing KB4034658. Remember this only happens with the KB4034658* for Windows 10 1607 update."

August 25, 2017 — KB4039884
> https://support.micr...pdate-kb4039884
Last Review: Aug 25, 2017 - Rev: 33
Last Review: Aug 30, 2017 - Rev: 34 - "This update addresses an issue where UI elements, including menu bars, are missing from Windows and Java applications running on computers with multiple monitors (multimon). The issue affects console and Remote Desktop logons when the main monitor is -not- in the top left area of the monitor layout in Control Panel. Applications may also stop responding or not work properly when moved between monitors. This issue impacts the following releases:
    2017-08 Monthly Rollup - KB4034664
    2017-08 Security-only update - KB4034679
    2017-08 Preview of Monthly Rollup - KB4034670
Before you install this update, you must install KB4034664 or KB4034679, and then apply this update... Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release..."

"... If you have problems with a Windows 7 second monitor after installing this month’s KB 4034664, there’s a new manual-install-only fix. But it’s buggy, too"
