Office Geniune Advantage (OGA) notification update release (KB949810)


 


WSUS Admins:


 


On April 15th the Office Genuine Advantage (OGA) notifications update (KB949810) was inadvertently published to WSUS servers for approximately twenty-four hours. This update was intended for Microsoft Office users in the pilot countries of Italy, Spain, Turkey and Chile, but because of WSUS publication, it became available to WSUS managed clients inside and outside of these intended countries.  This update has since been removed from WSUS.  For servers which synchronized the OGA update package, the package required a EULA acceptance before it could be made available to WSUS managed clients, via either manual approval, or auto-approval rules.   OGA notifications are designed to alert customers who are using non-genuine software, and are thus more vulnerable to activation exploits and the risks of counterfeit. As such, this update was marked critical for WSUS.

    I’d suggest Microsoft enforce the installation of this update to all computers through Windows Update. Many people around me are using pirate office systems.

    If only accidentally enabled on the 15th, how come this showed on our WSUS server on Saturday morning?  I’ve got the e-mail from the WSUS server to prove it.

    It would appear that Microsoft hasn’t told us everything.
