KB2749655 : Is this really needed?

Created: 18 Oct 2012 | 6 comments

I don't know if this update was widely discussed abroad, but I was wondering to see if someone is really planning to push it along with the patches for this month. Haven't seen it under my Symantec Console so far. Just curious to see what other techies think about this!

Symantec need to add this update to patch management asap. Their response so far is that this is an "unrequired bandage", but MS are saying otherwise.

Thank you for your post.
Could you please clarify what version of Patch Management Solution you are using?

If 7.1 SP1a or later, KB2749655 is actually included to Patch Data starting from version 7.1.361 (bulletin MS12-A09).

Thank you,
