Microsoft further delays patching product, service

Tuesday, 13 July 2004, 2:09 PM EST

Microsoft Corp. has delayed a significant update to its patch management tool and its single patching service until the first half of next year because of security work it had to do first related to Windows XP, a company executive said Monday.

As a result of the additional delays, "Microsoft Update," the planned successor to the current Windows Update service, and Windows Update Services (WUS), formerly known as Software Update Services (SUS) 2.0, are now expected to become available a full year later than originally promised. Both products had already been pushed back from an original release target in the first half of 2004 to the second half of the year.
