    August 2017 PU? Did you mean CU?

    1. No.
      The PU (public update) refers to the fixes pushed to your machine through Microsoft Update (usually security fixes). The CU contains all fixes from the PU plus other non-security fixes.
      The CU has to be installed manually.

    We are used to install the security patches for Word and Excel on ours SharePoint 2010 environments and correct me if I am wrong but these security patches do not required us to run the “SharePoint Products Configuration Wizzard”.

    Do we need to run the “SharePoint Products Configuration Wizzard” for the current Security Patch KB 2956077 – SharePoint Server 2010 (core components)

    1. Hi Stephmen,
      of course you only have to run the SharePoint config wizard for SharePoint fixes.
      And there is not a single SharePoint fix which would not require the config wizard.

    I am a litte confused about PUs. I thought you can find it in Microsoft updates as “PU”, but there is no KB called somthing like “August PU for Sharepoint 2013″… So as I undertsand the PU’s are some KBs in MS Updates which i found in your blog. So for August 3017 there is no PU for Sharepoint 2013. and in Juli 2017 there is only one > •KB 3213559 – Excel Services for SharePoint 2013. and the other KB provided in MS Update list are maybe from june, but for June you did not provide a list of KBs.
    Last CU installed is from May 2017…
    So should i install just the KB you provide in your blog or all Sceurity updetes for Sherpoint 2013?

    1. Hi Peter,
      PUs are more or less the package which include security fixes. Sometimes we release non-security fixes as PUs if they fix issues which affect a huge amount of customers.
      CUs include all fixes including those shipped in PUs.
      So if you installed a CU there is no need to install PUs from same or previous months.

        Thx Stefan,

        so there is no need to install the security fixes from actually MS Updates, cause we already installed CU May 2017.
        I will wait ill i see a PU package.
