    Status of KB3088195

    The last Patch Watch said wait for this update. Is it now safe to install or not?

    Put KB 3088195 (MS15-111) on hold until you get an update from your anti-malware vendor.

    Does this mean I must wait for a specific update from Norton and Malware bytes? If so, any hints about how to confirm that the anit-malware update addresses a potential problem with the KB 3088195?

    Sorry to be so ignorant, but I am confused about what the best course of action would be. I value the Patch Watch information very much and want to use it to best preserve the integrity of my computer.

    I think you should wait until Susan Bradley says it's safe. It's only been a week, and that one was "merely important".

    Will do. Sometimes it is hard to find that OK. Not always in the Patch Watch column.

    Since I use MSE, I installed it and have had no problems on win 7. YMMV

    Susan also keeps a public OneDrive spreadsheet that you can reference as well...

    But the "Okay to install" column hasn't been updated for six months. About as useful as the Patch Watch Master Chart (eight months).

    And considering that patch info was likely a motivation for many paid subscribers it is a wonder. Maybe penton will have some positive effect on this.

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

    This is the preface to the advice that was in the 10/15 newsletter...

    MS15-111 (3088195)

    Use a bit of caution with kernel updates

    I always err on the side of caution when it comes to kernel updates; our final official security update is no exception. KB 3088195 fixes an elevation-of-privileges vulnerability in Windows. But to exploit the flaw, the attacker must sign in to the target system and run malicious software. For that reason, the update is rated merely important.

    As I noted in previous columns, kernel updates can get hung up with running anti-malware applications. So I think it’s best to wait for an update to your AV app before installing kernel fixes

    I just looked there, and there's no mention of 3088195. Was it removed?

    What's the current status of this Update? The November updates are coming next week already and I still don't have word on what to do with this one.

    UPDATE: I see, it's mentioned in Susan's column though not the thread itself. For some reason I never received that week's Windows Secrets newsletter (I did get this week's) and so did not see the Patch Watch for that issue.

    There was no newsletter on October 29th...it was a "fifth Thursday".

    Hmm... just to make sure I understand: there was no newsletter, but Susan's column was published online?
