Patch ID

Patch Description

500100

SQL Server 2014 Service Pack 3 (KB4022619)

30716

Security Update for SQL Server 2014 SP3 CU(KB4583462) 32 bit

 

Components that were auto-deployed

 

  • Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Setup (English)

  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x64 Redistributable

  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x86 Redistributable

 

Why did this happen?

 

A few edge cases specific to MS SQL 2014 Server, were identified as the cause for this auto-deployment.


These edge cases hadn’t been fully incorporated in the approval mechanism for Microsoft apps present in the application detection logic.

These edge cases have now been added to the application detection logic to prevent this from happening again in future. Also, we’re looking to further automate the existing application detection logic and devise an enhanced approval mechanism to improve the application detection logic.

When was this identified?

 

This was first identified on May 13, Friday around 6 PM GMT and was fixed on May 14, Saturday around 11.30 PM GMT.

 

How to revert these changes?


You can reverse the deployment of these components either through custom script or software deployment as explained here.
