  • Hello Pinal.

    Thanks for the Information, I already applied this security Patch two days back.

    I wanted to know what will be the changes in these security patches.

    I am always scared to apply these security patches… I never know what is logic behind this, I tried to get information about but I could not find it any where ….

    if you know any source where I can find actual information about the security patch, not just description.


  • Imran,

    Great Question. Before updating my servers I am always scared too. I often wonder, if I have coded something which is using the fault in the system, my new system will not work or create problems.

    I am always curious about what my patch contains. When there are information about patch I always read. I have not found what are the information related to current patch. I have received email from one of the reliable source from MS and suggested that potential hacking issue will not occur after installing this.

    Again, I have successfully applied to all of my servers and they are currently running all fine. I will ask your question to private user group and try to find out if there are any additional issues.

    Kind Regards,

  • Hey!

    Is there an easy way to always know about the latest service pack, cumulative and security updates, as soon as they are publised?

    I’m looking for RSS or email messages.

    Thanks a lot.


    ps : congratulation for your website.

  • Hi Pinal,

    You maintain a great site which answers lot of questions. I downloaded the patch and when I tried installing it fails while applying for SQL Server.

    I would appreciate your thoughts.
