Where is stored the Security Patch for Windows Server 2003 in June 2017? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Microsoft made public that security patches in June 2017 contain also critical patch for Windows Server 2003.

    https://technet.microsoft.com/de-de/library/security/4025685

    We use WSUS in our update process. We could not find any patch related to Windows Server 2003.

    All security updates download is enabled. Downloaded all updates...No chance!

    Where is the security patch for Windows Server 2003?

    Best Regards

    Birdal

    It's my understanding that updates for these old/unsupported platforms were *not* released to the WSUS catalog channel, and so you must manually download and deploy those.

    download links are in this article:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/help/4025687/microsoft-security-advisory-4025685-guidance-for-older-platforms

    EDIT: I notice that (at least this one) is offered via MUCatalog, so you *may* be able to import that+others to your WSUS..

  • Hi,

    thank you for links.

    I downloaed these packets.

    If I try to execute the related exe file on Windows Server 2003, then I get "cannot access"...

    I have Administrator permissions on the machine.

    Does this packet try to connect to internet? If this the case, that is fatal! We don#t allow that Windows Server 2003 access to internet. What is the solution for this issue?

    Best Regards

  • Hi,

    I found the issue with "cannot access".

    The setup file was "locked". Why, I don't know.

    I unlocked the file (File > Properties > Unlock). Then it worked.

    Bye

    "Unblock" >> "this file came from another computer..."

    This is Windows doing its little bit to protect you from bad things ;)
    When you download any executable file from the "Internet Zone" (according to your browser), Windows will attach an Alternate Data Stream of that Zone, which causes this. Yes it's normal. Yes you should Unblock (which simply removes the ADS ZoneSetting).

    Windows has done this since ~2003...
