Microsoft has released a March 2014 update for Lync 2013 to address a memory leak

Microsoft has released an update for Lync 2013 that is focused on correcting a single issue – memory leaks during a video call on hardware that has an accelerated H.264 chipset KB2933495. The patch will be offered to all computers via Windows Update and if the situation never applies to you – oh well, just be content to know you are on the latest version of Lync post SP1. There have been issues reported regarding the Gallery View within Lync not working correctly since SP1, but this hotfix does not address that issue. There are two known issues – Persistent Chat file transfers may fail and screen readers may not be able to read the Lync keystrokes.

There are now 4 pre-requisites for the Lync patch which include MSO (KB2727096), MSORES (KB2817624), IDCRL (KB2817626), and Lynchelp (KB2817678).
