Security+ Objective 1.3 Implement OS hardening practices and procedures to achieve workstation and server security – Service Packs

A service pack is a collection of patches or fixes that are released by a vendor as a single installable package.  Security fixes are almost always included.  These are vendor tested patches released as a bundle, which saves you from having to install multiple patches individually.  Once the service pack is installed, you only have to install the patches that are created after the service pack’s release. 

Hotfixes and patches each have their own unique features that differentiate them from service packs.  Make sure you know the difference.
