Microsoft Patch Tuesday Update - 8th March 2011

With this Microsoft Patch Tuesday update, we see a relatively small set of updates in comparison to those lists of updates released by Microsoft for the month of January and February. In total there are three Microsoft Security Updates with the following rating; 1 Critical, and 2 rated Important. This is a small update from Microsoft and the potential impact for the updates is likely to be very small.


As part of the Patch Tuesday Security Update analysis performed by the ChangeBASE AOK team, we have seen very little cause for potential compatibility issues; in fact, this patch update raised no issues against our sample database.


Given the nature of the changes and updates included in each of these patches, most systems will require a reboot to successfully implement any and all of the patches and updates released in this March Patch Tuesday release cycle.
