Microsoft slammed over slow security patching


Several cybersecurity firm have criticized Microsoft for what they claim are slow and opaque patching practices. 

Orca Security and Tenable have both been quite vocal on how Microsoft handles high-severity vulnerabilities. The former says it has been trying to get Microsoft to fix a critical issue in Azure’s Synapse Analytics since early January 2022, and after a lot of back and forth, as well as two failed attempts, the company finally managed to provide a patch for user endpoints (opens in new tab), properly, only on April 15.
