Application Compatibility Update
By: Greg Lambert
With this October Microsoft Patch Tuesday update, we see again a relatively small set of updates. In total there are eight Microsoft Security Updates, 2 with the rating of Critical and 6 with the rating of Important. This is a moderate update from Microsoft and the potential impact for the updates is minor.
As part of the Patch Tuesday Security Update analysis performed by the ChangeBASE AOK team, we have seen very little cause for potential compatibility issues.
Given the nature of the changes and updates included in each of these patches, most systems will require a reboot to successfully implement any and all of the patches and updates released in this October Patch Tuesday release cycle.
