A few years ago Microsoft started offering free shipped cds containing security updates. Sadly, they didn’t do this very long, but the ability to update systems locally was a blessing for my previous job where we didn’t image our systems quite as much as I wanted to. Now I see Heise Security has an article detailing some scripts to build offline ISOs of patches. If you’re like me and oftimes prefer the path of least resistance, Microsoft offers downloads of DVD ISOs as well. Woulda thunk!
One thought on “patch your windows boxes offline”
Loner, there is another resource that I know of but have never used to patch windows systems offline. It is autopatcher.com I think I heard about it from George Starcher of the “In the Trenches” podcast. If you use it let us know what you think.
