Patch Tuesday: Here's what's new for Windows 7 and 8.1

Today is Patch Tuesday, which means that it's everyone's favorite time of the month, the time when Microsoft releases updates for all supported versions of Windows. While there are fixes for all versions of Windows 10, older versions of the OS also got patched.

For those on Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2, you'll get KB4054519, which is the December Monthly Rollup. You can manually download it here, and it contains the following fixes:

  • Addresses issue where users of SQL Server Reporting Services may not be able to use the scrollbar in a drop-down list.

  • Addresses additional issues with updated time zone information.

  • Security updates to the Microsoft Scripting Engine and Windows Server.

There's also a security-only build, KB4054522, which only contains the latter two fixes. You can download that here.

For those that are on the original release of Windows Server 2012, you'll get KB4054520. You can manually grab it here. Here's what's been fixed:

  • Addresses additional issues with updated time zone information.

  • Security updates to the Microsoft Scripting Engine and Windows Server

The security-only update, KB4054523, contains the exact same changelog, but you can grab that here.

Finally, if you're still holding out on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, you'll get KB4054518, which can be manually downloaded here. Here's what's fixed:

  • Addresses issue where users of SQL Server Reporting Services may not be able to use the scrollbar in a drop-down list.

  • Addresses additional issues with updated time zone information.

  • Security updates to the Microsoft Scripting Engine and Windows Server.

You might be noticing a pattern here, in which case you can probably guess that the security-only update, KB4054521, only contains the latter two changes. You can grab that here.

None of today's updates contain any known issues.
