Microsoft drops eighth rollup for Exchange 2007 SP3

Earlier today Microsoft released the eighth rollup update for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 3. As you’re probably aware, each update addresses various internal- and customer-found bugs within Exchange Server.

Back in January I speculated that we might have seen the last rollup for Exchange 2007 SP3, but the Exchange team understands that a large portion of its customer base still relies on Exchange 2007 and continues to churn out updates.

There have been plenty of rollup updates since Exchange 2007 dropped five-plus years ago and there are only a few flaws left in the product. The Exchange team fixed the following issues this time around:

  • The Exchange Information Store service stopped responding when performing a search on Exchange 2007 mailboxes,
  •  The Exchange Information Store service would crash on an Exchange 2007 mailbox server, when events 4999 and 7034 get logged,
  • A text or HTML email attachment is displayed in the message body instead of in the attachment line,
  • Outlook prompts you for credentials and incorrectly connect to an out-of-site global catalog after installing RU 6 for Exchange 2007 SP3.

Rollup 8 for Exchange 2007 SP3 also resolves the problem described in Microsoft’s MS12-058 security bulletin where a vulnerability in Exchange Server WebReady document viewing could allow for remote code execution, giving attackers back-door access to infiltrate Exchange Server.

Have you noticed anything the Exchange team might have missed? Email me to discuss.
