Some WSUS administrators have had questions regarding the latest Internet Explorer Cumulative Security Update MS10-090 -- KB2416400, released on Tuesday, December 14.

If you're experiencing issues with the successful reporting or installation of this update, or are experiencing the appearance of earlier unapproved Internet Explorer Cumulative Security updates, please read below:

Issue 1:

WSUS managed clients experience a re-offer loop for this update.

Scenario:

  • You approve MS10-090 (KB2416400) for installation to clients.
  • Clients download/install MS10-090 (KB2416400) successfully and a reboot is needed.
  • The reboot is completed.
  • After the reboot, KB2416400 is reoffered for installation.

Cause:

As noted in the MS10-090 security bulletin and article KB2416400, KB2467659 should be deployed along with KB2416400.

Resolution:
If you've installed KB2416400 without installing KB2467659, clients may be re-offered KB2416400 one or more times even when it installs successfully. The resolution for this issue is to install KB2467659.
