Trouble on Patch Tuesday

Posted by David Hunter at 8:37 PM ET.

Joris Evers at CNET reports that Microsoft pulls four planned patches:

Microsoft has pulled four bulletins from its announced list of Patch Tuesday fixes, but did not specify why it was backpedaling on the security releases.

It now plans to issue four security bulletins on Tuesday, rather than the eight originally announced, the software giant said Friday in an updated notice on its Web site.

On Thursday, Microsoft listed eight bulletins it intended to issue next week in its monthly patch cycle. It appears to have pulled two bulletins for Windows, one for Windows and Visual Studio and one for Windows and Office. These patches will now likely be released on a future Patch Tuesday.

The Redmond, Wash.-based software giant did not provide any explanation for pulling the bulletins only a few days before their scheduled release.

Is there any other thing that day in and day out provides worse publicity for Microsoft than security patching?
