Windows 7: Has the problematic Windows patch been pulled or not?

17 Feb 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
Has the problematic Windows patch been pulled or not?

Frankly, I'm confused.

A February 11th blog posting at The Microsoft Security Response Center regarding problems with a patch issued last week said "We also stopped offering this update through Windows Update as soon as we discovered the restart issues."

This posting has not been updated in the six days since it was written.

The patch in question is known as MS10-015 and as KB977165, depending on the context.

Yesterday at Gregg Keizer also reported that MS10-015 was no longer being issued. He quoted an email message from Jerry Bryant of Microsoft:
"Automatic Updates for MS10-015 will remain disabled until our investigation into the restart issues is complete"

What I read today is that MS has "confirmed" that the problem is due entirely to a specific malware infection present on the affected PCs. Thus, their recommendation was to disinfect the PC before applying this KB.

Given their current position on this, it's unlikely that they will be pulling this "patch".
