Every 2nd Tuesday of the month is Patch Tuesday for those of us in the Microsoft ecosystem. A good time is had by all each month. SharePoint was included in the fun of this month’s patches, patching a couple of particularly nasty bugs. This includes SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint 2010. Not be left out, both SharePoint 2007 AND SharePoint 2003 get patched as well. The bug is that nasty. I don’t even have a blog tag for SharePoint 2003.
Read through my Hey! Should I install this SharePoint patch? blog post to see whether I recommend you install this patch or not.
Here are some notes:
It looks like KB2817315 will require the March 2013 PU be installed before it will install and it will bump your build number up to 15.0.4435.1002.
It looks like KB810083 will also require the March 2013 PU be installed before it will install. It contains internationalized versions so it’s a good sized download at nearly 500 MB.
I don’t have any SharePoint 2013 VMs running at RTM, so I can’t verify those requirements. I gathered them by looking through each patch’s XML files. As I play with these patches more I’ll update this blog post.
