I just received word from Gunter Born that Microsoft has pulled three of its Outlook patches:

  • KB 4011042 – July 5, 2017, update for Outlook 2010
  • KB 3191849 – June 27, 2017, update for Outlook 2013
  • KB 3213654 – June 30, 2017, update for Outlook 2016

As I mentioned last week, Microsoft still hasn’t fixed any of the Office 2007 bugs it introduced in the June security patches.

Microsoft has posted a hodgepodge of manual fixes for the seven identified and acknowledged bugs in its June Office security patches.

For those of you with Automatic Update turned on: Remember, Auto Update will install patches, but it won’t uninstall them. There’s no specific recommendation that you uninstall the yanked patches — indeed, there’s no description of the problems caused by the latest round — but earlier versions of the bad patches-of-patches had a nasty habit of crashing Outlook.

Automatic Update? Bah.
