Ars Technica: Microsoft’s silence over unprecedented patch delay doesn’t smell right

Ars Technica: Microsoft’s silence over unprecedented patch delay doesn’t smell right. “Patch Tuesday has occurred regularly for more than 13 years. During that time, it has never been canceled, although one former Microsoft security boss, in a now-deleted Tweet, reported there were one or more close calls. And in fairness to Microsoft, the cancellation may have been related to company’s recent move to make updates cumulative, meaning they’re tested for bugs only on systems that install the entire package. That might cause a problem with a single patch to scuttle the entire release.But even if the cancellation was for the most banal of reasons, Microsoft’s silence is just wrong.”
