Microsoft attempts to keep a regulated patch release schedule -- the 2nd Tuesday of each month. However, there are situation when a vulnerability is found, deemed critical, and a patch is released out side of the normal timeline. The company usually issues patches outside of its normal scheduled monthly cycle only there is a vulnerability that is being actively exploited.

An announcement shall be made to SysNews warning of this upcoming patch. Sysnews will be updated once the patch has been approved. OU Admins will be encouraged to communicate these to their endusers promptly.

Emergency “out-of-band” security patches will be approved immediately for all (early, normal, late) once available to do so. All computers on the WolfTech domain, without exception, will receive the patch.
