Updating client computers with win 2016 server
Another bundle of critical bugs targets at least three issues with the way Windows, Office and Skype handle certain types of fonts.Microsoft said attackers could exploit this flaw to take over computers just by getting the victim to view files with specially crafted fonts — either in an Office file like Word or Excel (including via the preview pane), or visiting a hacked/malicious Web site.
There is very little pattern to when this problem occurs, as far as I can tell from Googling around.
For the record, Adobe says it has no plans to issue a Flash Player update today (as per usual) or anytime this month.
As always, if you experience any issues downloading or installing any of the Microsoft updates from this month, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment below.
This bug only affects a small number of people, but it’s an interesting one because it’s been a problem for almost a year and there’s still no clear understanding of what’s going on.
It happens on Windows 10 computers running Excel 2013 or Excel 2016. XLSX spreadsheet file is followed by a 30-60 second delay before the Excel logo appears and the spreadsheet loads normally. • There is no delay if Excel is already running when you double-click the file. People have sniffed with Process Explorer and Task Manager and looked at memory use and there is zero indication that anything is proceeding under the hood.
