Hi esrman:

It might be better if you start a new topic about your IE9 browser so that Sardoc's thread doesn't go off-topic.  When you create your topic please explain what you mean by "doesn't work" [e.g., IE9 throws a specific error when it's started, web pages display an error message if you browse to a secure (https://) site, etc.] and what steps, if any, you've taken to try and fix the problem.  Also let us know if you have another browser like Firefox ESR (extended support release) installed on your system.
-----------
32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 * Firefox ESR v52.5.3 * NS Premium v22.11.2.7 * MB Premium v3.3.1 * MS Office 2003 Professional SP3

Time for another bunch of updates. This time January and February ones will be in 1 post.

 

Turns out WS 2008 SP2 didn't get Spectre and Meltdown mitigation patches. Microsoft's https://support.microsoft.com/en-sg/help/4073757/protect-your-windows-devices-against-spectre-meltdown site still mentions it's "coming" for that system, but to be honest, I don't expect much.

 

The mitigation updates caused a lot of hullaballoo. The ones for AMD processors had to be pulled out of Windows Update for Win 10 and 7, as they were causing a reboot loop on certain CPUs. The ones for Intel processors received a patch that uninstalls the mitigation patch (!) Safe to say these patches have been the biggest bleepshow I've seen in a long time (and that's coming from someone who participated in Windows Insider programme), and if they are still coming to WS 2008 SP2 at some point, I'd rather have Microsoft improve them over the other system versions.

 

 

 

 

Anyway. Here's the list for January 2018:

 

Windows Server 2008 security fixes:

KB4056942 (Color Management Module, ICM32.dll)

 

Internet Explorer 9:

KB4056568

 

.Net 2.0 (co-exists with version 4 without replacing it, recommended to install alongside anything newer): KB4054996 (32 bit version link and 64 bit version link).

 

.Net 4.6 (install alongside version 2.0): KB4054981 (32 bit version link and 64 bit version link), and KB4055002 (32 bit version link and 64 bit version link).

 

.Net 4.5 (ignore if you're using version 4.6, which supersedes 4.5): KB4054992 (32 bit version link and 64 bit version link), and KB4054995 (32 bit version link and 64 bit version link).

 

 

 

 

 

Here's the list for February 2018:

 

Windows Server 2008 security fixes:

KB4056446 (Terminal Server fix for smart card authentication)

KB4074851 (StructuredQuery remote code execution fix)

KB4074836

KB4074603 (Windows kernel)

KB4073080 (Windows kernel again)

KB4058165 (Windows kernel 3rd time)

KB4073079 (Windows Common Log file system driver elevation of privilege)

KB4034044 (Windows scripting engine)

 

Internet Explorer 9:

KB4074736

 

 

 

 

Each of the above installed just fine on Vista.

Hi -Ruan,

 

KB4074603 (mentioned) supersedes KB4056944.
KB4073080 (mentioned) supersedes KB4056613.

However! KB4056941, KB4056759 and KB4056615 I have indeed missed. Well spotted! Just installed these 3, everything went fine.

 

May I ask where you got the info about them? I check the following every month:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/894199/software-update-services-and-windows-server-update-services-changes-in

https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/20180109/security-update-deployment-information-january-9-2018

https://www.ghacks.net/2018/01/09/microsoft-security-updates-january-2018-release/

 

and these 3 are not listed in any of these at all. I'm surprised they're not mentioned on Microsoft security information sheets when they should have been.

Thank you for letting me know, I'll add them to next month's "missed out" list, as I can't edit my post anymore (there must be some expiry period after which you can't edit posts, I'd imagine).

Hi Sardoc,

May I ask where you got the info about them?

 

When articles started appearing in early January about out-of-band updates to address Meltdown/ Spectre, I couldn't find any mention of updates for Server 2008. So I visited MS Update Catalog and searched for 2018 server 2008 , then from the results, clicked Last Updated. This gave me a descending list from the latest down, which is how I was able to find them.

​Thank you for letting me know

 

​No problem at all, you're most welcome.

​​-Ruan

​​Almost forgot, here's another one you might want to check each month. https://www.askwoody.com/kbnew/

Hat tip to greenhillmaniac over @MSFN for that one. He posted some non-security updates from there, earlier today.
