Resources for Those Dealing with Security Patches

By Brian Kelley, 2012/08/21

It's been a while since I was in the day-to-day business of security patches. However, I still keep up with vulnerabilities and fixes as I expect every Microsoft SQL Server DBA should. Here are some resources I recommend to do the job right:



The key with patch management is to know as much as possible as soon as possible. You don't want to roll a bad patch to a system and you want to know if a patch may have issues with a particular setup. These help you keep up with all that. Also, you might check out the TechNet forums on the specific technologies you support. Sometimes you'll find the answer you need there, although often times if there's something related to a patch, you'll see a post from the mailing list which contains the appropriate links.
