    There’s no link between DST and security updates in March or lack there-of.

    To the “…critical update open for a month…” – it takes more than a month to investigate, fix, and test an update (outside of a crisis response issue like an internet-wide worm).

    There’s a lot of complexity to updates, and as other reporters have correctly speculated, the only reason for none is that those which were slated were pulled owing to various testing issues.

      It’s been probably a couple of years since Patch Tuesday arrived with no patches. There could be plenty of reasons for this now, so maybe it is just coincidence. It’s still interesting timing.

        My comment is not speculation.

          How about emailing me some verification then? You’ll pardon me for being a little dubious of anonymous claims. Reach me at dutter at webpronews dot com, in confidence of course.
