Articles from gHacks and Woody Leonhard at Computerworld :

Microsoft Windows Security Updates June 2018 release overview - gHacks Tech News
Quote:
It is June 12, 2018 and that means it is time for another Microsoft Patch Day overview. Microsoft releases security updates for its products on the second Tuesday of every month.

The overview offers information on all security and non-security updates that Microsoft released today as well as details about known issues, published security advisories, and the distribution of updates for all supported client and server operating systems and Microsoft's browsers.
Make sure Windows auto update is temporarily turned off, and watch out for SMBv1 fixes | Computerworld
Quote:
On Patch Tuesday, as usual, you’d be well advised to avoid the first round of traditionally buggy patches. A possible “fix” for the well-documented SMBv1 vulnerability may make this month particularly exciting.

On my Win 7 machine I have the update settings set to Check for but let me choose... and that way I can vet what I can allow to be installed by clicking on Important or Optional updates.

Unchecking the top box will deselect all where you then click on each and then on More info in the right pane.

This tells you what each is for.

If you want it, just check its box and move onto the next one as applicable.

If you don't want it, check its box then right click on it and select Hide.

When you have it set to auto install you get warts and all - perhaps Woody should be more specific in his warnings as to the update setting you should use.

I wouldn't advocate turning off Windows Update.

I haven't checked my Win 7 yet, so don't know what is being offered other that the usual Cumulative and MSRT ones.

It didn't fix a bug that has returned on one of my Win 10 machines which first appeared after 1709 and that is after a restart, it gives a code 45 on my Ethernet adapter.

One of the subsequent updates under 1709 resolved it but it started again after 1803.

I can't report it to MS because I haven't and don't intend to create a MS account.

What on Earth is wrong with creating a MS account to try and get to the bottom of a problem?

I'm not sure that you should turn them off, I posted the link to the article because it seemed interesting if somewhat pessimistic! I have my updates set to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them". All 3 of our PCs notified us that updates were available and we decided to go ahead with the installation. So far, there hasn't been any trouble and as Windows Update creates a restore point before installing updates at least we've got that to fall back on in case of problems.

If I'm the only one to report this, what do you think MS would do - probably sod all, so what is the point.
