Microsoft Confirms Botched MS13-057 Windows 7 Update

The company confirms that some users are experiencing issues with this update

Microsoft rolled out another botched update on Patch Tuesday that caused quite a lot of problems for Windows 7 and Windows XP users.

According to bug reports, the faulty security update has actually broken down video rendering on Windows XP and 7 computers, so half of the screen turned black when launching specific applications.

The technology giant has finally acknowledged the issue, saying that it affects products such as Camtasia Studio, Adobe Premiere Pro, Serif MoviePlus, and YouTube Movie Maker.

“If you use some of the following software, you may experience issues after installing 2803821. In some cases, WMV video files may fail to successfully encode or decode. Upon completion of the investigation, Microsoft will take appropriate action to help protect our customers. This may include providing mitigations and workarounds or re-releasing this security update,” the company explained.

The patch is still being delivered through Windows Update, but Microsoft will most likely release a fix in the next few days.
