Well, we had a bit of a break last month with just a few Microsoft Security Updates. Most importantly, last month we really could not see any real application compatibility or dependency impact on our sample application portfolio of roughly 1000 application packages.
That said, Look out for April - we have a massive update coming. And our preview tells us that there are going to be some issues.
From the previous it looks like we have the following update profile;
- 9 Updates rated as Critical, 8 rated as Important
- 1 Update related to Elevation of Privilege
- 15 updates to resolve Remote Code Execution issues
- 1 Update is related to potential Information Disclosure issues
I have created a chart that details the affected platform here:
Note: I have BOLDED the interesting updates, and the * for the Windows 7 and Server 2008 platforms relate to both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms.
You can read the preview here: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS11-apr.mspx
As we do every month, I will post an update on the sample results from out test portfolio on the potential application compatibility issues that each Microsoft Security update may present.
