Microsoft rereleased a critical Exchange security update nearly two weeks after pulling it, assuring customers that it was tested before it was released.

The original issue with the security update, MS13-061, came from the Search Host Controller service. End users came across the problem when checking email with Office Web App (OWA) on Exchange 2013.

After update was pulled, IT pros questioned Microsoft’s plans to have quarterly updates for Exchange and suggested the plans were in jeopardy. One IT pro called the pull “the latest in a long line of cock-ups.”

Microsoft said the update was tested in its own Exchange dogfood environment before releasing it. The company also made sure search settings would be reinstated after installation.
