Windows 10: February 2017 security update release delayed
Actually, you're almost right. Key people were missing at Microsoft during the Super Bowl timeframe. Today, "patch Tuesday" happens to fall on Valentines Day. The same thing is happening in my insurance industry. The biggest companies have key people who haven't quite come out of holiday party mode.
A little over a week ago, Insiders were mumbling that UUP would not be ready any time soon, then with build 15031, UUP delivered flawlessly, and shut the moaners Inside up.
Now a missing Defender update, and "patch Tuesday" delayed again sets those users with a tendency to atrial fibrillation thrilling to some perceived breakdown at MS HQ.
One "patch Tuesday" probably later this year, maybe even next month, will see a new feature build dropping onto your machine.
Get your pacemakers serviced sooner than later folks...

Reason: updated link
Time for them to stop this cumulative update idiocy & go back to single patches. They might take a lesson from this occurrence, although I highly doubt it.
Microsoft shelves all February security updates | PCWorld
Previously, Microsoft could delay a single patch—when, for example, that patch had been previously announced but had not been completed in time—without impeding the company’s ability to release all other fixes.
That occurrence, while uncommon, was not extraordinary.
Best to keep separate Cumulative updates as on the Insider version, and Security updates on the released to the public version.
This thread concerns the general released version.
Technically, you are correct. It is available to the general public. It will not be offered to the general public thru the normal Windows Update process. It is intended for the Insider program for those who have chosen the Release Preview Ring, or for those who wish to update manually by using the Catalog or install via .cab file. Not something normal (public) users would do, or even know about.
Any Guests visiting this forum or new members reading this thread should not interpret this KB as something they need to do. It would likely be out of the scope of their skills. They may, if they choose, but it shouldn't be interpreted as necessary.
I mean, complainers will complain. No matter what. If the thing gets released andhen re-patched, wow, armaggeddon. If not, wow, the same.
Just chill, people. Is your W10 having any issues at the moment? I guess not. The thing will come when it gets ready.
Too late for me, already updated from MUC, so far hasn't created any issues.
Not sure who you are referring to, but no issues here. Best to keep on topic.......
Obviously Adobe Flash Player received the new updates. My updater programs are showing an update available for Flash Player - which usually means MS has updates pending.
