Dear readers:

It is once again time for an “out of cycle” patch from Microsoft.  Please, make sure you read the Microsoft Security Bulletin 08-078 and apply accordingly.  It is located here:  http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms08-078.mspx

Follow the directions there for your specific patch level and browser type.

WSUS and Please, You Can’t PUSH!

Posted in Taz, Technical with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 27, 2008 by tazspaz

My *ahem* favorite question *rolling eyes* being emailed or IM’ed to me right now has been “Hey, how can I get WSUS to push out this update??”

I always suggest that one uses an “admin” script that can be added to a top level GPO for “emergancies”.  This way you can add a command such as:

wuauclt.exe /detectnow

That would (in my case for a logon policy set in my GPO) make all clients and servers query the WSUS for any updates.  This would install critical patches, say that come in “out of cycle”, and need to be addressed immediately. *hint, hint*
