    Microsoft change location of some security updates May Patch Tuesday


    Microsoft is going to cease its current practice of making all security updates available from both the Microsoft Download Center and the Microsoft Update Catalog.

    In a very brief April 29 blog post, company officials noted the coming change, which takes effect next Tuesday, May 10 -- which is Patch Tuesday. Moving forward, security bulletins will point to the Microsoft Update Catalog when updates are not listed on the company's Download Center website.

    From Microsoft's post:

    "Updates have historically been published on both the Microsoft Download Center and the Microsoft Update Catalog and Security Bulletins linked directly to update packages on the Microsoft Download Center. Starting May 10, some updates will no longer be available from the Microsoft Download Center."

    What Microsoft's blog post doesn't say is why the company is making this change.

    Changes to Security Update Links - Starting May 10


    Changes to Security Update Links - Starting May 10, some updates will no longer be available from the Microsoft Download Center

    Updates have historically been published on both both the Microsoft Download Center and the Microsoft Update Catalog and Security Bulletins linked directly to update packages on the Microsoft Download Center. Starting May 10, some updates will no longer be available from the Microsoft Download Center.

    Security bulletins will continue to link directly to the updates, but will now point to the packages on the Microsoft Update Catalog for updates not available on the Microsoft Download Center. Customers that use tools linking to the Microsoft Download Center should follow the links provided in the Security Bulletins or search directly on the Microsoft Update Catalog.

    For tips on searching the Microsoft Update Catalogue visit the frequently asked questions page.

    Great, you can access Microsoft Update Catalog only using IE. I already can not download drivers from there.

    I don't have or use IE11 only Edge so I should still be ok to get the updates?

    excerpt from the article posted........

    On ghacks.net, Martin Brinkmann notes that another theory is Microsoft may be moving to make Windows Update exclusive for home users, and will use the Microsoft Update Catalog for Enterprise and other business users.
    .................................................................................................... ..............................................

    That does make sense.
