    LANDESK Security and Patch News




    • (July 14, 2014) Microsoft has released KB2959626. This update fixes some reliability issues that involve Remote Desktop Session Host and RemoteApp.




    When you use Remote Desktop Session Host or RemoteApp in Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2, you experience one of the following reliability issues:


    The Remote Desktop Service crashes.


    RemoteApp sessions frequently either stop unexpectedly or become wedged in an unusable state if a client does not cleanly disconnect.


    Idle sessions last longer than the idle time-out when automatic reconnections occur.




    This problem occurs because of an issue in Remote Desktop Session Host and RemoteApp. Please visit the following page for more details:
