Pinned topic Possible false positive - fixlet 1402215

‏2014-06-19T11:44:58Z |

Hi all,

We're are seeing a number of systems that have MS developer tools installed such as Visual Studio and these are reporting that MS14-022, fixlet 1402215 is required but when verifying via an MBSA scan, this patch is not reported as missing nor installed.  Checking the KB on http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2863854 it states that for the patch to be installed, Sharepoint Designer 2013 must be installed. None of the systems I've looked at have SharePoint Designer 2013 installed and the fixlet relevance doesn't appear to be checking for the presences of SharePoint Designer 2013 so I beleive this may be a false positive. The patch will install despite the lack of SharePoint Designer but for me that isn't the issue, its the possible flawed detection that that will result in the unnessesary installation of a patch that I'm more concerned about.

Is anyone else seeing similar?

    Thanks for reporting! We will look into it!

    Please kindly provide the following registry key, OS name and SP level, and the MBSA scan report.

    key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer" of native registry

     

    Have you tried to manually apply the patch? If not, can you try and let us know the result? If there is any error message, it will be great to have the screenshot for the manual install attempt error message too.

    Those information will help us investigate the issue.

    Thanks in advance,

    Sylvia

    Hi Sylvia,

     

    My appoligies, I was mistaken. Windows Update wasn't showing the patch as applicable but MBSA was (not often 2 different WUA based scans give different results).

    Thanks Rob for clarifying this!

    It seems that our fixlet follows MBSA behavior as expected. Thanks for confirming it!
