February Patch Day Cancelled
For the first time, since its introduction 10 years ago, Microsoft had to cancel a monthly Patch Day. The February Patch Day has been dropped completely. All security and quality updates planned for this month will be released together with the March update.
The software company did not give an exact reason for this harsh measure. Only, that some last minute issue was discovered, that would have affected the experiences of some customers. However, experts assume that the reason for the cancellation is not a failure in only one update, but a critical problem with the update infrastructure.
Next Patch Day is on March, 14th. Administrators should prepare themselves to a really extensive Patch Day, because not only updates for February but also for March will be rolled out.
