  1. Sweet that they fixed that baseline issue. We halted patching after failing with the dev farm. Will be looking forward to the upgrade for 2 months!

  2. Hi Stefan
    The MS15-046 (Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office Could Allow Remote Code Execution (3057181) ) contains the patches for SharePoint components as well. Should we run PSCONFIG after the patching ?

    For MS15-047 its clear that we need to run the PSCONFIG , but MS15-046 information is not clear it seems .

  3. PSConfig must be run after all types of sharepoint patches. No exceptions.

  12. Does pu include all previous security updates or may cu 2015 include both pu n security updates? Or do we need install them separately i.e may cu, pu and security updates?

  13. Hi Waqas,
    May PU does NOT include all previous security fixes. May CU does.
