lmacri Posted July 29, 2020 Share Posted July 29, 2020 Further to the 24-Jun-2020 Microsoft support article Windows Update SHA-1 Based Endpoints Discontinued for Older Windows Devices, could someone tell me which updates would have to be applied to a Vista SP2 OS to add SHA-2 code signing support? After reading the section in that support article titled How to Update Windows Devices to SHA-2 I'm guessing that adding the Windows Server 2008 SP2 updates KB4474419: SHA-2 code signing support update and KB4493730: WU Service Stack Updates are required but I'd just like to confirm. Also, would adding these Windows Server 2008 SP2 updates change the build of a Vista SP2 machine from 6.0.6002.x (Build 2) to 6.0.6003.x (Build 3) as discussed in the MS support article Build Number Changing to 6003 in Windows Server 2008. If a Vista SP2 user performs a clean reinstall of their OS after July 2020, does this mean that they will have to add SHA-2 support by manually applying these Windows Server 2008 SP2 updates first, and then apply the 4 or 5 required "speed up" patches recommended on page 1 of page 1 of m#l's thread Updates not working, it has been searching for updates for hours in the MS Answers forum before Windows Update will work correctly and patch their Vista SP2 system back to end of extended support (11-Apr-2017)? ---------- 32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 * Firefox ESR v52.9.0 * Malwarebytes Premium v3.5.1-1.0.365 HP Pavilion dv6835ca, Intel Core2Duo T5550 @ 1.83 GHz, 3 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
