SQL Security Patches & CU RRS feed

  • Question

  • Am just wondering if SQL Server Security Patches are included in the next CU or SP.

    For instance, MS16-136 - Security Update for SQL Server, is not included in the next available CU or SP. So, is that like we have to install Security Patch separately to fix those vulnerabilities? Thanks

  • Hmm I  think  SP does not include security update. Youu need to look here


    The majority of security updates released are for client side (often browser) issues. They may or may not be relevant to a server installation

  • Thanks much Uri,

    I think they should add these type of important patches to CU/SP, as this one in <g class="gr_ gr_47 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace" data-gr-id="47" id="47">partuclar</g> says "could allow an attacker to gain elevated privileges that could be used to view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts. The security update addresses these most severe vulnerabilities by correcting how SQL Server handles pointer casting.

    I will have a call with MS support as well later.
