Microsoft Has Pulled KB4088875 to Save Customers Further Pain

Yesterday, we told you about an issue with KB4088875 and VMware. But, since then, even more insidious problems with this monthly rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 has surfaced.  And, these new issues are in addition to the known issues Microsoft already admitted to with this particular update.

Its difficult to imagine why,  with the known issues already reported in the original KB doc, that Microsoft decided to push this update on its customers anyway. If Microsoft’s customers weren’t leery enough of the long history of crappy updates, this is yet another reason to take a cautioned approach to the monthly stack of updates seeping out of the Redmond company’s network.

Microsoft has now pulled KB4088875. We hope to have some public apology statement soon.
