What are the GDR and CU update designations and how do they differ?

The General Distribution Release (GDR) and Cumulative Update (CU) designations correspond to the two different servicing options in place for SQL Server baseline releases. A baseline can be either an RTM release or a Service Pack release.

  • GDR updates – cumulatively only contain security updates for the given baseline.
  • CU updates – cumulatively contain all functional fixes and security updates for the given baseline.

For any given baseline, either the GDR or CU updates could be options (see below).

  • If SQL Server installation is at a baseline version, you can choose either the GDR or CU update.
  • If SQL Server installation has intentionally only installed past GDR updates, then choose to install the GDR update package.
  • If SQL Server installation has intentionally installed previous CU updates, then chose to install the CU security update package.

Note: You are allowed to make a change from GDR updates to CU updates ONE TIME. Once a SQL Server CU update is applied to a SQL Server installation, there is NO way to go back to the GDR update path.

Can the security updates be applied to SQL Server instances on Windows Azure (IaaS)?

Yes. SQL Server instances on Windows Azure (IaaS) can be offered the security updates through Microsoft Update, or customers can download the security updates from Microsoft Download Center and apply them manually.

FAQ:
References Identification
Last version of the Microsoft Malware Protection Engine affected by this vulnerability Version 1.1.17600.5
First version of the Microsoft Malware Protection Engine with this vulnerability addressed Version 1.1.17700.4

Why is no action required to install this update? In response to a constantly changing threat landscape, Microsoft frequently updates malware definitions and the Microsoft Malware Protection Engine. In order to be effective in helping protect against new and prevalent threats, antimalware software must be kept up to date with these updates in a timely manner.

For enterprise deployments as well as end users, the default configuration in Microsoft antimalware software helps ensure that malware definitions and the Microsoft Malware Protection Engine are kept up to date automatically. Product documentation also recommends that products are configured for automatic updating.

Best practices recommend that customers regularly verify whether software distribution, such as the automatic deployment of Microsoft Malware Protection Engine updates and malware definitions, is working as expected in their environment.

How often are the Microsoft Malware Protection Engine and malware definitions updated? Microsoft typically releases an update for the Microsoft Malware Protection Engine once a month or as needed to protect against new threats. Microsoft also typically updates the malware definitions three times daily and can increase the frequency when needed.

Depending on which Microsoft antimalware software is used and how it is configured, the software may search for engine and definition updates every day when connected to the Internet, up to multiple times daily. Customers can also choose to manually check for updates at any time.

What is the Microsoft Malware Protection Engine? The Microsoft Malware Protection Engine, mpengine.dll, provides the scanning, detection, and cleaning capabilities for Microsoft antivirus and antispyware software.

Does this update contain any additional security-related changes to functionality? Yes.  In addition to the changes that are listed for this vulnerability, this update includes defense-in-depth updates to help improve security-related features.

Where can I find more information about Microsoft antimalware technology? For more information, visit the Microsoft Malware Protection Center website.

Suggested Actions Verify that the update is installed Customers should verify that the latest version of the Microsoft Malware Protection Engine and definition updates are being actively downloaded and installed for their Microsoft antimalware products.

For more information on how to verify the version number for the Microsoft Malware Protection Engine that your software is currently using, see the section, "Verifying Update Installation", in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 2510781.

For affected software, verify that the Microsoft Malware Protection Engine version is 1.1.17700.4 or later.

If necessary, install the update Administrators of enterprise antimalware deployments should ensure that their update management software is configured to automatically approve and distribute engine updates and new malware definitions. Enterprise administrators should also verify that the latest version of the Microsoft Malware Protection Engine and definition updates are being actively downloaded, approved and deployed in their environment.

For end-users, the affected software provides built-in mechanisms for the automatic detection and deployment of this update. For these customers, the update will be applied within 48 hours of its availability. The exact time frame depends on the software used, Internet connection, and infrastructure configuration.

End users that do not wish to wait can manually update their antimalware software.

For more information on how to manually update the Microsoft Malware Protection Engine and malware definitions, refer to Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 2510781.
