Also be aware that updated security fixes have been created for the following security bulletins


  1. Just curious…. MS15-110 mentions Sharepoint Server 2010 (2553405), what is this patch as it isn’t mentioned above.


    1. This is the forms server component of SharePoint 2010.


  2. Hi Stefan, So is October 2015 PU contains “Security Bulletin MS15-110” ?


  3. Hello,
    Does the config database version change upon installing MS15-110?


  4. Hi Stefan,
    So after installing these update, do we need to run the psconfig wizard to update the DBs?


  5. And what about the Language pack. I have 5 LPs on my farm with base installation in English. So do I need to download the security update for all the LPs or just the English one?


    1. SharePoint CUs and PUs include the fixes for all language packs. You never have to install them separately for different languages.
      You only have to do this for service packs.


      1. Thanks Stefan. That’s Crystal Clear!!
