In one of the most bizarre patching contortions I'-ve seen in a long time, Microsoft originally released this month'-s Win7/Server 2008R2 Monthly Rollup patch, KB 4093118, with a little bit of southern lagniappe.

Patching by prescience, as it were. There'-s a" Great Carnak joke in there somewhere.
