Hello! I was wondering if the "security update for SQL Server 2017 CU15: July 9, 2019" is included in cumulative update 16. In general, are security updates included in the latest CU? I know that the previous CU fixes are included in the most recent, but I wasn't 100% sure about security updates! Thanks :) 


Yes.  SQL Server Cumulative Updates (CU) releases include all previously released functional and security fixes.  Thus, SQL Server 2017 CU16 release does include the Security update for SQL Server 2017 CU15 released on July 9, 2019.
