According to a blog post today, Microsoft has altered its stance on security update supersedence based on customer feedback (read: customer pains).
Microsoft said that…
Last month when updates were released, contrary to expectation of customers;
- The Security Only Update for October was superseded by the November Security Monthly Quality Rollup for November
- The Security Only Update for November was also superseded by the November Security Monthly Quality Rollup for November
Based on feedback, the team has updated the supersedence relationship of updates so that Security Only updates are not superseded. In addition, the logic of the updates has been modified so that if the Monthly Quality update is installed (which contains the security updates), the security update will not be applicable.
