December Patch Tuesday brought two Windows 7 updates: KB4054518 and KB4054521.
Monthly Rollup KB4054518 features improvements and fixes that were a part of KB4051034 (the update was released in November), as well as three additional fixes and security improvements:
- Addressed the issue where users of SQL Server Reporting Services could not use the scrollbar in a drop-down list.
- Fixed additional issues with updated time zone information.
- Added security updates to the Microsoft Scripting Engine and Windows Server.
Security update KB4054521 fixes time zone information issues and brings security updates to the Microsoft Scripting Engine and Windows Server.
Microsoft didn’t list any known issues for these two updates. We scoured Microsoft’s support forum and couldn’t find any bug reports. Indeed, it appears that these two updates are stable and don’t bring any issues of their own.
