Microsoft Patch Tuesday Update - 14th December 2010

With this week’s Microsoft Patch Tuesday update, we see the largest collection of updates ever delivered by Microsoft in a single Patch Tuesday release with 17 updates having the following rating; 2 Critical, 14 Important and 1 Moderate. Aside from the significant number of Security and Application updates with this Patch Tuesday release cycle, we see a moderate number of issues affecting a small number of applications. The ChangeBASE team recommends a particular focus on the Microsoft Security Update MS10-106 as it raised a significant number of issues on the AOK sample server platform portfolio.

Here is a sample of the results for one application and a summary of the Patch Tuesday results for one of our AOK Sample databases:
