Patch Tuesday: Fuzzy Font Fix is Here

Patch Tuesday: Fuzzy Font Fix is Here

A couple weeks ago, Microsoft promised a fix in March to a problem that it introduced during February's Updates rollout. The issue, introduced in KB3013455, was later given a temporary hotfix to repair problems with fuzzy fonts for systems running Windows Vista SP2 or Windows Server 2003 SP2.

We can confirm that Microsoft has lived up to the promise of a permanent solution. This month's KB3034344, released as MS15-023 security bulletin, provides the fix.
