Microsoft drops eighth rollup for Exchange 2007 SP3

Matt Gervais Matt Gervais Profile: Matt Gervais

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.
