Irritation in conceptuality of Windows Updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi together,

    unfortunately it exists in the conceptuality related to Windows Security Updates irritations.

    We use WSUS in our company to public Windows Security Updates. After the new Microsoft Windows Update stragey since October 2016, there is a big irritation in conceptuality related to Windows Security Updates. Microsoft defines mainly 3 security updates  forms:

    1) Security Only Quality Updates

    2) Security Monthly Quality Rollup

    3) Preview of Monthly Quality Rollup

    The 3rd is not interesting for us.

    Please sort the following up-to-date security updates (March 2017) related to new strategy (above)! I have a big problem with the correct category:

    A) "Security Update for Windows Server 2008 for x64-based Systems (KB4012598)" 14.03.2017

    B) "March, 2017 Security Only Quality Update for Windows Server 2012 (KB4012214)" 14.03.2017

    C) "Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 10 for Windows Server 2012 (KB4012204)" 14.03.2017

    D) "March, 2017 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows Server 2008 R2 for x64-based Systems (KB4012215)" 14.03.2017

    E) "Security Update for Adobe Flash Player for Windows Server 2016 (for x64-based Systems) (KB4014329)" 14.03.2017

    B and D ist clear for me, but how about with A, C, E?

    And how about with the titels "Important Update......", "Cumulative update......", "Critical update....."? How can see in WSUS whether such kind of update belong to "Security Only Quality Updates" OR "Security Monthly Quality Rollup"?

    I miss a detailed Microsoft manual about changed update strategy!

    Best Regards
