    Hi Stefan,

    Is this update a CU or a PU. The KB article says it is a CU.
    Thanks for clarifying.

    1. Hi Nico,
      which KB do you refer to?
      The link is for the security bulletin (not a KB article) which contains the download links for the security fixes.

        The title of the blog post is: SharePoint security fixes released with January 2016 PU.
        Shouldn’t that be the January 2016 CU for SharePoint? Or am I misreading?

        1. Nico Martens says:

          Nevermind, I understand now.

    Hi Stefan,
    is MS16-004 only for SharePoint Foundation 3013 or for both enterprise version and foundation?

  3. Davorin says:

    Never mind. I run Microsoft update on one SP enterprise server and this security update KB3114503 for SharePoint Foundation 2013 is coming up as needed.

    1. SharePoint Foundation security fixes are always relevant to SharePoint Server and project Server as SharePoint foundation is an integral part of the other two products.
