    Impacts of recent changes to Windows servicing model for updates

    Yanick Girouard

      Microsoft has changed the way they deliver updates, where they now deliver update rollups (cumulative updates) and no longer deliver updates in the form of individual hotfixes you can include or exclude. This change is coming for security updates in October, and we would like to know if there is going to be any impact to BSA and the way it filters updates?


      Will we need to change anything in our patch analysis jobs to properly include those updates if we use to only deploy security patches and exclude service packs?
