On Tuesday, November 18, 2014, Microsoft released an out-of-band security update (MS14-068) to address a critical vulnerability in Windows. The update deals with elevation of privileges and affects Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows RT and Windows RT 8.1, as well as Windows Technical Preview and Windows Server Technical Preview.
MCS is currently patching our data center infrastructure and also helping our customers with an active RightTrack service agreement automatically. We strongly encourage customers to apply this update as soon as possible if they do not have an active service agreement with MCS already. The patch does require a reboot so some downtime must be scheduled.
