Preferred Solution: Oracle Java SE Critical Patch Update Pre-Release Announcement - June 2011

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Resolve issues with Active Protection
Resolve an issue where incompatibilities with other drivers would result in Windows shutting down with STOP error

Dear Experts, 

I have few queries :

i started patching from Oct 2017 ) and i believe this June 2017 IE patch requires below registry key to be present , which they are not :
The following registry key is missing.
This registry key is required to enable the fix for CVE-2017-8529:
SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_ENABLE_PRINT_INFO_DISCLOSURE_FIX\iexplore.exe
SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_ENABLE_PRINT_INFO_DISCLOSURE_FIX\iexplore.exe
My Query is - 
Does the installation of the superseding patch adds/updates the registry keys required for the patch it supersedes.In this case should  the successfull installation of April 2018 IE patch be adding these registry keys required for June 2017 IE patch.
if not  is there any documentation related to this ?

Good morning.
 
Not sure if there's an issue or not but wanted to post since I didn't see any other Member's had posted anything similar with the latest Java Update.
 
Both me and the wife got the prompt to update Java; she got hers last night  and I got mine this morning.
 
We're both running Windows 7 and we both have disable Java content in our browsers anyway but we like to stay updated and/or patched, so we downloaded the latest offering  (and declined the Free McAfee Security Scan, thank you very much )  and just as it appeared to complete the process, we both received this pop up:

Sorry about the pic size...still haven't *quite* figured out the best way to insert a pic in these Forums.
 
So I did a quick check on both our machines and we're both running Version 7 Update 25, which appears to be the latest, according to the Test Java version via the Java website...but it also shows that it was installed on March 18th of this year.
 
So I Googled the main phrase of the pop up but that only lead me to any number of technical articles that were  way  beyond my pay grade.
 
Also, in our Control Panel, it shows the Java version to be 32-bit although both our machines are 64-bit. 
 
 
 
So, is something amiss?
 
Should I uninstall both versions and reinstall only the 64 bit versions?

Microsoft Announces Patch for Critical Windows 10 Anniversary Update Bug

Soon after Microsoft rolled out the Windows 10 Anniversary Update on August 2, the firm started getting reports of a potential bug that might impact partitions on computers that upgrade to the new version.

Specifically, users were complaining that after installing the Anniversary Update, some of their partitions were no longer visible in Windows 10, making it impossible to access data that was stored here.

Without a doubt, many thought their data was gone, but Microsoft rushed to acknowledge the bug shortly after that, explaining that it was working on a fix, and no files were lost despite the fact that partitions were no longer visible.

And recently, Microsoft announced that a patch was ready, and it would release it to users as part of the next Windows update patch, without actually providing specifics on when exactly this is scheduled to take place.



?Thanks for everyone?s input and patience. Microsoft is planning to release a fix to address the majority of the misidentified partitions in an upcoming Windows Update,? a company engineer said.

Oracle Listener redirected connections denial of service

For Oracle on Windows NT, the Oracle listener process redirects connection requests to a new port and the Oracle Database server creates a new thread for this port. If a connection to the port is not made, the thread and consumed memory is lost until the Oracle Database server is restarted. By repeatedly requesting to be redirected and not connecting to the waiting port, an Oracle server can be forced into consuming all memory on the server. Once all memory has been consumed on the server, any attempt to log in to the console results in crashing the operating system.

Microsoft has released a patch that eliminates a security vulnerability in Visual Studio RAD (Remote Application Deployment) Support, an optional sub-component of FrontPage Server Extensions. This sub-component contains an unchecked buffer in a section that processes input information. By establishing a web session on with the server and passing a specially malformed packet to the server component, an attacker could cause code of his choice to run on the server.

OK, so after getting spooked by the "hidden agenda" of a series of recent 7 updates that apparently track your computing habits and install Windows 10 nagware, I uninstalled all the updates on my computer and have decided to start from scratch.

I just got a notice about a series of updates coming in on "Patch Tuesday" (9 June) of this month. I've looked up some of them and they seem to be somewhat important (I hid all the "recommended" ones which were nothing more than Windows 10 crap), but I'm curious to know what exactly do they "patch" or otherwise do, and how do they do it.

In layman's terms.

Microsoft's security bulletins are too technical for my understanding and I want to make sure I'm not installing adware, nagware, spyware -- or upgradeware.

The updates are:
KB3058515, Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (and which has apparently had some problems)
KB3033890, Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (apparently something to do with Windows Media Player)
KB3057839, Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems
KB3059317, Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems
KB3063858, Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems
The last one is just MRT (KB890830) which I know to be safe.

For the first two, do I need to install them if I never use IE or WMP? I actually have them "turned off" (inaccessible) in Programs & Features. Should ... Read more

difficult and is rated as low severity.

I have been using it since F3 beta 5 It came with the version of Ubuntu that I am currently running. They must have released it earlier for linux, as I have had the full version since about the 10th. I like it, especially the smart bookmarks.

We have domain and time to time we need to share a local printer to other computers. For years we could just type in the computer name //blehbleh and there we can see the shared printer. After June 15th ish this no longer works. This does however work for
administrators but not for normal users. We just get the access denied error. If I go to networks I can even see the computer but if you try to connect to the computer you are not prompted for administrator user/pw to access it either.

Thanks,

Hi,
 
I've noticed users having installed the June updates cannot open certain attachments. They are automatically blocked by outlook 2010. So far I've seen .pdf and .docx blocked and the only common factor is the length of the name (so long they were truncated and have the "....docx" at the end). Users who haven't installed the updates yet can access the attachments without any problem.
 
Level1Remove in the registry doesn't work.
 
Has anyone else encounter this issue? And does anyone know how to fix it?
 
Thanks,
 
G

A:Outlook 2010 blocked long filename attachments since June patch

Hi G,
 
Exactly the same here, still looking for a fix. I tried the Level1Remove in the registry doesn't work with no luck.
 
In addition to not being able to open attachments our users can't send them. The only temp fix I have is to shorted the file names to just a few characters.
 
Second time this Month MS has caused problems with updates.
 
Regards

Hiya

As Whitesnake once said 'here we go again on my own...'

Microsoft has released a patch that eliminates a security vulnerability in NetMeeting, an application that ships with Microsoft® Windows 2000 and is also available as a separate download for Windows NT 4.0. The vulnerability could allow a malicious user to temporarily prevent an affected machine from providing any NetMeeting services and possibly consume 100% CPU utilization during an attack

http://www.microsoft.com/Downloads/release.asp?ReleaseID=30963

Also:

Microsoft has developed an improved version of the Cipher.exe tool, offering an important new option – the ability to permanently overwrite (or "wipe") all of the deleted data on a hard disk
