February 2017 security update release, delayed... until March 2017

Recommended Posts



Patch Tuesday happens once a month, every month, for the last number of years. But this months patch Tuesday, didn't happen because Microsoft declined to release any updates as per their blog post here.

Our top priority is to provide the best possible experience for customers in maintaining and protecting their systems. This month, we discovered a last minute issue that could impact some customers and was not resolved in time for our planned updates today. 
After considering all options, we made the decision to delay this month’s updates. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this change to the existing plan. 

The good news is patching will resume next month as normal.

UPDATE: 2/15/17: We will deliver updates as part of the planned March Update Tuesday, March 14, 2017.

Questions have been asked as to why the patches were delayed this month, and so far, no real answers, could it be issues with the recent 0 day SMB flaws discovered ? or is it to do with the patch build system, either way we have to wait for more info from Microsoft.
