    1. Hi Robert,
      SharePoint Foundation 2013 is an integral part of SharePoint Server 2013.
      That means all SharePoint Foundation 2013 security updates need to be applied on SharePoint Server 2013 as well.
      Cheers,
      Stefan

  2. Thanks for the post Stefan. I have a question about KB 4484263 – SharePoint Server 2013 February 2020 CU

    We have June’2019 CU currently on all our SP 2013 Server farms. Since then, our Qualys Vulnerability management tool has been sending different vulnerabilities(KBs) every month on several servers from several farms we have. Just rechecking about our assumption that this KB 4484263(Feb’2020) will supersede all the previous security vulnerabilities.

    KB 4484264 – SharePoint Foundation 2013 (core component) – Is this needed as well in our case? Would really appreciate your inputs to supersede the security vulnerabilities.

    1. Hi Varun,
      4484263 includes all previous and current fixes and security fixes.
      So 4484264 is not required if 4484263 is installed.
      Cheers,
      Stefan

  3. Hi Stefan,

    I am not seeing any CU patches being released for SharePoint 2010 after Dec 2019. Any update as to when we can expect the next patch or if it will be there anytime soon?

    1. Hi Arnab,
      sorry, there is no such information available.
      Cheers,

    1. The version number field has been added on feedback from customers and filled for all later CUs.
      You can find older version numbers in my blog posts.

      1. Thanks for your reply. I can’t find any blog post about Sharepoint 2016 v 16.0.0.4807 and Sharepoint 2019 v 16.0.0.10337 ? I want to be sure about CVE-2019-0604.

  4. Hi Stefan,

    After installing Feb security updates for SharePoint 2013 – KB4484261 and KB4484263, it is found that our profile synchronization service stopped and FIM synchronization service cannot be started either. The following error starts to appear:

    FIMSynchronizationService: The server encountered an unexpected error and stopped. Event ID 6324.

    Failed to connect to the database xxxxxx-Sync_DB on xxxxxxx_SQL …

    We received such error after a produciton to staging clone as well. So not sure if this is related to the Feb. update or the clone. Just would like to check with you and see if you know anyone experienced the same and what should we do about this.

  6. I’am curious about the OOS updates. For OOS 2016, I found the latest update from 2018. Will this be sufficient from a security perspective? Would be OOS 2019 supportetd with SP 2016?

    Reply

    1. Hi Yoda,

      there is no OOS 2016 or OOS 2019. There is only OOS.
      From time to time there are new release for OOS available which require an uninstall and reinstall of OOS. That happend in November 2018.

      The earlier release you have installed is outdated and has not received any updates or security updates for a long time.
      You should definitely install the November 2018 release and update it with current security fixes.

      Of course it is compatible as well with SharePoint Server 2016 and 2019.

      Cheers,
      Stefan

  7. Hey Stefan, thank’s so far. I get this not clearly in the technet docs. Beyond that, recent OOS ist listed under Office 2019 in VLCS, this leads to some confusion and raises questions, if only Office 2016 is licensed (at least for me).

    Reply

    1. Yes, I fully understand. It’s a technical limitation. You have to put it in one category – you cannot put it into two.
