For years, Microsoft released security updates for Windows, Office and other software on the second Tuesday of the month, but today the software giant decided to delay the release of all planned update. Something the company hasn’t done before.
Microsoft’s decision to not release the updates was made at the last minute. On its website the company writes, “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.”
Today’s patch Tuesday would the first one where Microsoft would not publish Security Bulletins, it’s unknown if that’s related.
