Happy patch Tuesday everyone. Microsoft has announced the service updates for the month of June 2014, this month is full of some rather large updates. There are updates for every current version of Windows, that’s right all versions of Windows server 2003 and up as well as Vista and up. The most import of the seven are the first two that are critical updates for Internet explorer and Office, both of these are for every version of Windows and will require a restart. The critical updates are to fix another zero day flaw for Internet explorer.
The rest of the updates are normal windows updates that may require a restart but on their own probably will not. Windows 8 and 8.1 seem to be the ones who are going to see the greatest amount of updates from this list, so yes Server 2012 and 2012R2 are in their as well, they should be an easy installation. So if it has been a while since the last time you restarted your computer the updates are a good thing, you should restart your computer at least once a week. I recommend for servers once a month.
