Exchange 2010 SP3 RU8 Released

The Exchange team today announced the availability of Update Rollup 8 for Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 3. RU8 is the latest rollup of customer fixes available for Exchange Server 2010. The release contains fixes for customer reported issues and previously released security bulletins.  In addition to addressing previous security issues, Exchange 2010 SP3 RU8 also corrects the security issue MS14-075.  For Exchange 2010 this is also discussed  in Outlook Web App Token Spoofing Vulnerability – CVE-2014-6319.

Update 12-12-2014:  Exchange Server 2010 SP3 Update Rollup 8 has been re-released to the Microsoft download centre resolving a regression discovered in the initial release. The updated RU8 package corrects the issue which impacted users connecting to Exchange from Outlook. The issue was isolated to the MAPI RPC layer and was quickly remediated to deliver the updated RU8 package. The updated RU8 v2 package is version number 14.03.0224.002.

Update 10-12-2014:  Please see comments at the end of this post with an issue relating to RPC Client Access.  There is a TechNet forum where the community is discussing this issue.  In the RPC Client Access the forum post notes that the following can be observed: “Log Watson: [IndexOutOfRangeException] Index was outside the bounds of the array”.

Update 10-12-2014:  Exchange 2010 SP3 RU8 has been removed from the download centre until the above issue has been resolved.

Important Notes

Now, before we rush off to download and install this there are a couple of items to mention!

 

  • Test the update in your lab before installing in production.  If in doubt test…
  • If the Exchange server does not have Internet connectivity then this introduces significant delay in building the Native images for the .Net assemblies as the server is unable to get to http://crl.microsoft.com.  To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
    1. On the Tools menu in Windows Internet Explorer, click Internet Options, and then click the Advanced tab.
    2. In the Security section, click to clear the Check for publisher’s certificate revocation check box, and then click OK.

    We recommend that you clear this security option in Internet Explorer only if the computer is in a tightly controlled environment. When setup is complete, click to select the Check for publisher’s certificate revocation check box again.

  • Update Internet facing CAS servers first
  • Backup any OWA customisations as they will be removed
  • Test (yes technically this is in here for a second time but it is important!)

Cheers,
