Are Office Security updates combined into the Windows Monthly security updates?

Q: Are Office Security updates combined into the Windows Monthly security updates?

There was an Office vulnerability that was fixed with the April patch Tuesday in an Office update, but we've had trouble making sure all users have the updated Office patch as N-Central(our patch management tool) doesn't always list what build/patch Office
is currently running accurately.

We do know all our PCs have the April/May security updates. Is the Office Update combined into the big monthly one?

Preferred Solution: Are Office Security updates combined into the Windows Monthly security updates?

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.)

Hi.
Thank you for all your support and security updates for my two Surface RTs. 
They?re great and I don?t want to see them go.  A quick aside? It would be nice for my two Surface RTs and me, if Microsoft had a change of heart and decided to port Windows 10 RT with Office RT for Surface RT and get a few
more years support.  Anyway.
Today one of my Surface RT 8.1 provided the option on shut down, to update and restart, which I did. 
It said it was installing 4 updates.  When rebooted, I went to view update history and found two failed updates and three successful ones for a total of five. 
The first one in the list that failed is this one here below.



Then to get more information, I clicked the link shown there for 4048958 to learn more. 
That took me to the Microsoft Security Update Guide, where I searched for 4048958 and was provide two links for RT 8.1. 
Both links, one for IE11 and one for RT 8.1, go to the KB 4048958 article, which says to get more information, go to the Security Update Guide, which of course takes one back to the KB. 
Not very informative loop I guess.
The second update that is on the list above showing as failed, is the one for Adobe to prevent remote code execution. 
When I am in Windows Update and double-click the failed entry for Adobe, and then click the link for more information, it takes me to a URL that does not show a KB number and provides a link for more i... Read more

Our patch policy states that we only deploy Critical and Security Microsoft updates to endpoints (predominantly Windows 7 devices) that we support.
However we have noticed that the third party that setup our patch deployment through AutoTask have setup Rollups to be deployed as well as Critical and Security Patches to all endpoints.
Aren't Rollup patches a consolidation of all Security patches that are individually released on Patch Tuesday and non critical patches (which we dont have to deploy)?
Need some direction on this so we can decide whether to deploy Rollup patches or remove them from the approved list through Autotask.

Problem description: After successful installation of above updates computers need to reboot, after rebooting system can only start in safe mode, otherwise it reboots endlessly. After starting
system in a safe mode updates are automatically reverted and then system starts normally. Updates need to be hidden. All other updates are successful.

I don't even have MS Office Suite installed ... do I need to install the security 'patches' ?

What is confusing is that IE security updates are necessary for Windows even though I don't use IE.

A:Windows Security Updates For Office Needed If Don't Use Office?

IE is part of Windows, so you will see updates for it whether you use it or not. If you are seeing updates specifically dealing with Office, then you have it or some part of it installed. You don't get updates for a product that isn't there.

This is an inconvenient delay, not anything serious. Running Windows 7, if it makes a difference.

Issue: Microsoft Security Essentials auto-updates block Microsoft Updates until MSE is finished.

Description: I have Microsoft Update (or Windows Update, whichever it's known as in 7) set to automatically check for updates but not download or install without my approval. I do this so I can review what's being updated, (I'm a little wary of Microsoft putting an anti-piracy app in as a "critical" update in the last year or two). Anyways, when I boot up the computer, it checks for updates and alerts me of them.

However, Microsoft Security Essentials also auto-checks for updates upon boot, and if it has an update it will automatically being downloading and installing it in the background. Which is all well and good, except whenever that's happening it causes MU to "fail" updates until it's done updating. Thus, I have to remember to wait until the MSE update is done, then run the MU update.

Question: MSE definition updates are included under "Optional" updates in MU, is there a way to make MSE stop updating independent of MU so I can queue all the updates together? I feel like this would be the easiest way to prevent this annoyance. I don't see an option, and I'd rather put up with this annoyance if the only solution is to put all updates back into Microsoft's hands completely.
 

A:Microsoft Security Essentials updates blocking other windows updates

My understanding of MSE is it will check several times during the to make it has the latest updates. Most GOOD VA programs will do this as there are several releases daily for AV definitions. This is the only way you and your machine will be aware of these releases.

When some of these attacks happen, a definition is released, but as the infection is refined, the the definition must also be refined and/or improved. I use F-Prot on my machines, but I install MSE on the kids and grand kids machines. I have seen as many as 12 releases in one day from F-Prot, this is what is call" being on top of things".

So I would not want to rely on ME being the one to check several times daily on all of my machines to see if a new release has been made.

A:Security Updates for Office

Hi Karmacat,

Go to start, Control Panel, Windows Upate, In the left Panel, Change settings and remove the tick from Update service, Use microsoft update

To get updates for office 2003 you will then have to reactivate the updates for Windows and other products from Microsoft Update.

You may also be asked to enter the download addresses into Internet Explorer again but this is well expained on the webpage that opens up, should this step be necessary.

I hope this helps

Hi, I have tried a lot of diagnostic work before putting my hand up as I am not finding a path out of the bsods and miscellaneous errant behavior of this new build which works great sometimes and then falls over. I can duplicate the principle faults (bsods) reliably but doubt my reasoning is conclusively accurate. Basically whenever I install the last 7 security updates for MS Office 2013 it will bsod within 5 - 10 seconds of logging in. Always works in safe mode and restoring to pre-update always fixes it. This was a list of 70 before I got it down to 7, of which I know at least 2 directly cause a bsod and I am unsure of how complicit the others / combinations are. I have tried MS help and it is very slow going over there - after some hours and losing the remote connection on a restart as I needed to do a restore to sort some of their experimenting just to get proper control back! Sure would appreciate some more pointed help, thank you.

Receiving in WU about 4 security updates for .Net Framework 4.0 and 2 improvement Updates .Net Framework 4.0.

Strange, i'm feeling some of those are already installed....since two or three months

They're still not listed at MS Download Center.

[Edit]:
Looks those are only .Net Framework 4.0 Extended & Shared

Removed all of the version 4.0, looks like a big MS bug as it was constantly offered in W.U.

Hi,
Get-MsrcSecurityUpdate does not seem to list some "security only" updates in the xml output.
It does list all the other updates including Monthly rollups. Is there a way to retrieve this?
For example, the following updates are missing from the output when the command
Get-MsrcSecurityUpdate -Year 2017 was executed:


4015548, 4014985,   4014986,   4014987 and 4014988.

I've got Office 2003 Student Edition (all installed, minus Outlook). I haven't done any updates to it. I did not install the Microsoft GDI+ Detection tool. And I only visit Windows Update (not Microsoft Update) and install the critical updates under custom install.

I'm wondering:

1. Are the updates for MS Office that are critical security things included when you do Windows Update? (For example, there are a number of things listed here towards the bottom: http://isc.sans.org/diary.html?storyid=2232 -- would those have been included in the last batch of critical Windows updates?

2. Do you need the GDI+ thing to do Office Updates?

3. When you go to the Office Updates site, it wants you to install and run some kind of Active X thing. Is this necessary? And can it cause any problems?

4. Can doing critical Office updates (separate from whatever, if anything, that comes with Windows Update) cause any problems or conflicts with other things on your computer?

Thanks for the help!

1. No. You either do Windows update and Office update, or you do Microsoft update, which does both at once.

2. I think so, but I am not positive. If you need it, it will install it, or, if you decline, you may not get updates. One way to find out, try it.

3. I don't think it will do the updates without it. Again, try it. It never caused any problems for me having it.

A:How Important Are Ms Office Updates? Are They Included In Windows Critical Updates?

I don't have that detection tool either. At least some of the office updates are available through the windows update feature. You can also navigate to the Office updates site from the windows update site. There are no problems with installing the office updates separately. In fact, I generally download only 1 or 2 updates at a time as I am on dial-up.

Read a Brink thread on IE9 and a question percolated.

Internet Explorer is part of Windows 7 and can't be uninstalled, merely "turned off". I don't use IE and I have it turned off at the earliest possibility.

A few years back, when I used ATI/AMD's control panel's links, IE would run to access the hyperlinks, instead of the default browser. Very disturbing! I have not encountered that scenario since then. Relief!

I did a return-to-factory install in March and according to the update history, Windows Update has not pushed a Security Update for Internet Explorer onto my system.

Is my system relatively secure in regards to the unpatched Internet Explorer that is integral to Windows 7?

A:Windows 7 + IE Security Updates

Hello Gigggles,

I would recommend completely updating IE to 9, with all patches, and simply setting another browser as your default. The truth is that windows itself often will use IE, refusing to use all other browsers. This won't hurt anything, it is just how it is set up. No reason to disable IE completely, even from a security standpoint.

The security factor would come into play with the browser you run most of your websites from. Make sure that browser is completely updated at all times, and all important or critical windows updates are installed.

So my suggestion would be, once again, to update everything, and just use the browser you are most comfortable with.

Hello Everyone, I am just wondering if anyone knows why my ASUS pc is now having trouble with windows
updates. I do like to keep the pc updated, but every time I download and install a security only update
when I start my machine I always end up with the black screen for a while, and everything runs slow. I cannot find an answer to this. It has been a very reliable pc in the 3 years I have had it, only a few hiccups
because of mistakes I had made. The strange thing is I have a refurbished HP6005 Pro Quad AMD-Phe-2-x4 B95, with windows 7 pro 64 bit, and it has no problems with the updates, but I prefer the ASUS pc, not just
because it starts much quicker, everything runs quicker in it.

Can someone point me to resources that talk about how to manage Windows security updates for X number of hosts on a local network?

To be specific, I manage a 30 node private network (XP pro sp3)at my place of business. I have all "autoupdates" turned off on all machines so as not to use up bandwidth in the event a large service pack is made available and all nodes do an update at the same time.

I want to find out if there is a way to manage updates by either downloading the updates to one server and pointing the Desktops to that server, or managing when each individual machine will perform an update from one location.

A:Windows Security Updates

<<...so as not to use up bandwidth in the event a large service pack is made available and all nodes do an update at the same time.>>

Since SPs are rather infrequent...and well-publicized before release...I don't know if I would adopt that line of thought. XP has had 3 in 8 years of availability to the public.
