I haven't got 8.3 running but in 8.5 it is in the hotfixes as the filename below. (I assume this would have been true before we upgraded from 8.2)
SQLServer2008-KB2977322-x64.exe-MS14-044-en-SQL SERVER 2008 X64-SP3
What filters are set on your patch catalogue ?
Go to the Cumulative Update URL link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2983175
- Note that there is no option to download the patch, but instead you are given a link to request it "Hotfix Download Available"
- After clicking on the link, you will have to accept the agreement and explicitly select the hot-fix and enter personal details including a "captcha"
As it states on that page:
