  1. Hi Stefan – The security bulletin MS16-042 under ‘Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013’ lists only the Word Automation services vulnerability, not Excel Services – whereas you’ve listed both for the SharePoint 2013 suite. Is Excel Services on SharePoint 2013 vulnerable and patched by this PU? SharePoint 2010 in the same bulletin lists both Word and Excel Services as vulnerable.


    1. Hi Damian,
      indeed you are right: Excel Services 2013 is not affected by the security vulnerability.
      I have updated my blog post.


  2. How can I install the patches automatically through SCCM?
