    Today, as part of Update Tuesday, we released nine security bulletins – three rated Critical and six rated Important in severity, to address 56 unique Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs) in Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Server software.

    We encourage you to apply all of these updates. For more information about this month’s security updates, including the detailed view of the Exploitability Index (XI) broken down by each CVE, visit the Microsoft Bulletin Summary webpage.

    We also announced changes related to SSL 3.0 and you can read more about these on the IE blog.

    Just a FYI (KB3001652) Update to Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office runtime seems to be stuck doing nothing for 30 mins on 3 of my machines. May want to skip that update and install it separately. One of the machine is a Windows 8.1 computer.

    I believe this Update has already been pulled from the Update Site.

    After reading this message I installed everything except KB3001652 and when complete it was no longer a pending update. Checked for updates again and another small update showed up but KB3001652 was nowhere to be found.

    Thanks for the advance information, saved me some aggravation.

    Yes, I hit this snag as well and even launched a support ticket on the problem. It affected 4 of my machines, and forced me to identify the process name (starts with vstor) which I killed ("end task" in Task Manager) to regain control of my machine. A couple of reboots later and the problem mysteriously fixed itself. Most vexing! I had to reboot my SP3 about 6 times before I was able to cure the BSOD (pages locked in memory) that occurred during the shutdown phase. All seems to be working well now on all four affected machines, and I just upgraded my wife's PC with no problems at all. Sigh.

    Two updates for IE11. After installing KB3021952 if you run WU again you will be offered KB3034196 as the 1st update is required to be installed first.. They are part of MS15-009.

    KB3001652 showed up today in WU. I think I will wait to be sure this is a fixed version.

    The re-released update installed on my 8.1 desktop without problems and no restart required.

    Interesting though, it has not shown up yet for my 8.1 Laptop. I wonder if it has been pulled again.
