This month's MSRT added detection/removal of

Win32/Ursnif - a "family of Trojans [that] can steal personal information and information about your PC and sends it to a malicious hacker.   It can also run commands from a malicious hacker."

On this Win7x64 SP1 system, I was offered 13 updates (9 Windows 7; + 4 Office 2010) totaling 138.6 MB.

[This does NOT include the MSRT, which I downloaded and ran separately.]

RE: Updates 6/14/16 - "Microsoft Tuesday"

A follow-up concerning Microsoft Security Bulletin MS16-077 - Security Update for WPAD (3165191):

Microsoft is today closing off a vulnerability that one Chinese researcher claims has “probably the widest impact in the history of Windows.” Every version of the Microsoft operating system going back to Windows 95 is affected, leaving anyone still running unsupported operating systems, such as XP, in danger of being surreptitiously surveilled.

Is this computer not listed as compatible with Windows 10?  My Windows 7x64 SP1 upgraded without any problem.

RE: Updates 6/14/16 - "Microsoft Tuesday"

BB,

The particular Win7x64 SP1 machine on which I downloaded/tested the updates was at work.   I am therefore deferring the decision about updating that machine to my superiors, who have not (yet?) offered me any guidance.  

As for personal systems, I have two that are eligible:   a Win7x64 SP1 laptop (that you're familiar with) and a 32-bit Win8.1 tablet.   I have not updated either, and don't plan to.

RE: Updates 6/14/16 - "Microsoft Tuesday"

They tried to sneak Win 10 on my Win 8.1 laptop yesterday along with all the other Update Tues updates.

It automatically started downloading the upgrade file when I checked for updates yesterday. It didn't warn me or show me a list of available updates. It just started to download. Fortunately, I was watching and canceled it.

And I thought I'd hidden every GWX update they tried to feed me over the past few months.

RE: Updates 6/14/16 - "Microsoft Tuesday"

Just did the updates on my Win 7 Pro+SP1, 32-bit desktop.

Now performance is lagging. Process Explorer shows dwm.exe and one svchost process using CPU time. Although total RAM usage is constant, there are lots of RAM cycles running. I rebooted but it hasn't helped.

Scanned with Malwarebytes, MSE, and SAS. All came back clean.

Wasn't an issue before the updates, so I suspect something happened...

Anybody else running 7, 32-bit, notice a performance problem after updating?
