https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/MS14-045

Severity Rating: Important

Revision Note: V3.0 (August 27, 2014): Bulletin rereleased to announce the replacement of the 2982791 update with the 2993651 update for all supported releases of Microsoft Windows. See the Update FAQ for details.

Summary: This security update resolves three privately reported vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows. The most severe of these vulnerabilities could allow elevation of privilege if an attacker logs on to the system and runs a specially crafted application. An attacker must have valid logon credentials and be able to log on locally to exploit these vulnerabilities.

scotty_ncc1701 note: This was the update M$ pulled earlier this month.

Have a great day!

I personally have chosen to hold off on installing KB2993651 until "the smoke" clears:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2993651/en-us

 

Known issues of this security update
  • Known issue 1 After you install this security update, fonts that are installed in a location other than the default fonts directory (%windir%\fonts\) cannot be changed when they are loaded into any active session. Attempts to change, replace, or delete these fonts are blocked, and a "File in use" message is displayed.

    For more information, go to the following Microsoft webpages:
  • Known issue 2 After you install this update, the z-order of the windows is changed. (The z-order calls the SetWindowPos function together with the HWND_TOP parameter.) Therefore, the windows of certain applications may become invisible or may be incorrectly displayed behind other windows.

    Status
    We are currently working on a resolution for this issue.

    Notes
    This issue also occurs after you install the following updates:
    • 2965768 Stop error 0x3B when an application changes the z-order of a window in Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
    • 2970228 Update to support the new currency symbol for the Russian ruble in Windows
    • 2973201 MS14-039: Description of the security update for Windows on-screen keyboard: July 8, 2014
    • 2975719 August 2014 update rollup for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2

 

 

:whistle: Caveat emptor and all that jazz. YMMV.

I am holding off too. August has not been a good month for the Microsoft Team.

i got warned about this new update on the 27th and installed it. there was a "link" in windows update to a microsoft page which mentioned something about potential for causing problems with fonts. i haven't had any harm done by it, though a recent article on "howtogeek" discusses something i have seen which MIGHT have a connection to this update( a slight change in the appearance of text in chrome, the windows update sounds like a probable cause to me). the fact that this update came out on a day other than "patch tuesday"(second tuesday of the month) must suggest microsoft is rather scared of whatever this patch is designed to protect against. 


Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB
