Microsoft To Stop ‘Patch Tuesday’ Security Patch Email Notifications, Updates Windows Update Client
This change pertains to anyone who opted into a mailing list that Microsoft set up a long while back to alert them to Patch Tuesday updates.
"In lieu of email notifications, you can subscribe to one or more of the RSS feeds described on the Security TechCenter website," Microsoft said.
In addition, Microsoft rolled out an update to its Windows Update client in order to offer a more secure communication channel. The update applies to users running Windows 8, Windows 7 SP1, Windows RT, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, and Windows Server 2012.
