Microsoft Cancels Patch Tuesday

UPDATED Barely 24 hours after giving advanced notice of its monthly "Patch Tuesday" fixes, Microsoft late Friday said that it was scrapping the updates over a "quality issue." Microsoft had planned to release a single bulletin for a critical vulnerability affecting Windows.

"Late in the testing process, Microsoft encountered a quality issue that necessitated the update to go through additional testing and development before it is released," a Microsoft spokesperson told BetaNews. "Microsoft is committed to only releasing high quality updates that fix the issues in question, and therefore we feel it is in the best interest of our customers to not release this update until it undergoes further testing."
