MS14-051 Issue fix KB2991509 not available for Windows 8 x64 RRS feed

  • Question

  • To fix an issue with MS14-051, MS released Hotfix KB2991509 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2991509/en-us). In this article I can only find a download link for Windows 8 x86. The download link for the Windows 8 x64 version is missing. For other OS-Versions there is a link for both architecture versions.

    Where is the Windows 8 x64 hotfix?

  • MS updated their KB2991509 article today. They added the downloadlink of the Windows 8 x64 version and the link for Windows Server 2012 x64.

    Unfortunately the hotfix still isn't available in WSUS and WindowsUpdate.

  • Hi Boumi,

    Do you meet the IE issue with MS14-051 mentioned in KB 2991509?

    Additionally, please run the Windows update in automatic, and Windows will choose to download and run the corresponding Hotfix.

    If there are any problems, please let me know.

    Best regards,

  • Thanks for your answer.

    No, I did not yet meet the IE issue. I just wanted to be prepared before releasing MS14-051 on several thousand of our clients...

    We are patching with WSUS. Unfortunately there's no patch KB2991509 available.

    Neither in Windows Update. When I run the UpdateScan, there's no KB2991509 found. So, you were wrong - at least concerning our Windows 8 x64 systems...

    By the way: MS updated their KB2991509 article today. They added the downloadlink of the Windows 8 x64 version.

  • Hi Boumi,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    The Microsoft security update has a lifecycle.
    Microsoft releases security bulletins on the second Tuesday (US Pacific Standard Time) of every month.
    For more information, please refer to the following article.
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/dn436305.aspx

    Perhaps, we will need to wait a couple of day.
