Thanks Steve. Can you please link to the MS KB for SQL Server? https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4073225/guidance-for-sql-server

It looks as though you meant to in this passage:

SQL Server Patches

There is a KB that discusses the attacks. You can read that in

Here are the patches as of this time:

Can someone explain why both the OS and SQL Server should be patched? Wouldn't OS patching cover everything?

Read the documentation at the links provided. It explains. There's also a micro (firmware) change required in some cases.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

When you put the right degree of spin on it, the number 318 is also a glyph that describes the nature of a DBAs job. Wink
