Microsoft Security Advisory (954960): Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) Blocked from Deploying Security Updates

Published: June 30, 2008 | Updated: August 1, 2008

Microsoft has completed the investigation into public reports of a non-security issue that prevents the distribution of any updates deployed through Microsoft Windows Server Update Services 3.0 or Microsoft Windows Server Update Services 3.0 Service Pack 1 to client systems that have Microsoft Office 2003 installed in their environment. Microsoft confirmed those reports and has released an update to correct this issue under Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 954960. Microsoft encourages customers affected by this issue to review and install this update.

Notes:

The issue affecting System Center Configuration Manager 2007 first described in Microsoft Security Advisory 954474, where System Center Configuration Manager 2007 systems were blocked from deploying security updates, is separate from the issue described in this advisory. However, there are similarities in the contributing factors in both issues.

Customers who wish to verify that the update has been installed properly can check that their version of Microsoft.UpdateServices.WebServices.Client.Dll, located at %ProgramFiles%\Update Services\WebServices\ClientWebService\bin\, is 3.1.6001.66.

The update detailed in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 954960 cannot be uninstalled through Add or Remove Programs. Customers who wish to remove this update must uninstall Windows Server Update Services as detailed in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 954960.

Revisions:

• June 30, 2008: Advisory published.

• July 9, 2008: Advisory updated to reflect availability of fix.

• July 10, 2008: Advisory updated to reflect specific installation and uninstallation procedures for the update for Windows Server Update Services running on Windows Server 2008.

• July 16, 2008: Updated the example workaround steps for running the update to Windows Server Update Services 3.0 Service Pack 1 on Windows Server 2008 as an administrator.

• August 1, 2008: Added Frequently Asked Questions entry to communicate re-release of the update to fix known installation issue with Windows Server 2008 systems.
