Listing of bad updates for Exchange Server 2010 running on Windows Server 2008 R2 ?

Hi,

Can anyone here please share me which windows update that is bad and must not be selected when applying Windows Update for Exchange Server 2010  running on Windows Server 2008 R2 ?

So far I can only list the following update by Googling around in the past few weeks:

KB2506143 Windows Management Framework 3.0 for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
KB2506146 Windows Management Framework 3.0 for Windows Server 2008 SP2
KB2823324 Security update for the Windows file system kernel-mode driver (ntfs.sys)
KB2970228 Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition
KB2975331 Update for Windows Server 2012 R2
KB2975719 Update for Windows Server 2012 R2
KB2976897 Security update for kernel-mode drivers
KB2982791 Security update for kernel-mode drivers
KB2992611 Security Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition
KB3004394 Update for Windows Server 2012 R2
KB3005628 Update for the .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2012 R2
KB3014406 Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition

I'd greatly appreciate if anyone can assist in posting which update is dangerous or harmful.

Thanks,

Unless the updates have adverse effects, they are not bad, (Microsoft will rerelease them) they just resolve certain issues.  Most of the time security updates should be applied to servers after testing them in your staging environments.

Jessie,

Yes I understand that, but in this case, I'm about to apply the Windows Update by downloading it from the internet directly (no WSUS or SCCM) and there is no testing environment in my company here.

most of the critical Tier-1 application like Exchange, SQL server and the SharePoint server hasn't been updated since many moons ago (around 90 - 150 patches to be applied).

Then I would only do the critical security updates for now.  I have run exchange for years and the security updates never broke anything for me.

The others you can see if they meet a need, but i doubt anyone will be able to tell you if an update is bad or not, it all depends on what you have running and in what configuration.

ok, so in this case what if i just select all of the update except the .NET framework 3.5 and above ?
because i believe that Exchange Server 2010 is only running on .NET v3.0 not higher, would that be safe idea that you reckon ?
