We’ve had a few questions regarding critical updates and WSUSSCN2.CAB so I thought I’d publish a quick explainer in case you were wondering the same.
Question: Is security advisory KB2719615 going to be added for Microsoft Update Catalog in the near future?
Answer: KB2719615 is a critical update, so like all other MSRC security advisories that are released as a Critical Update, it will not currently be in the WSUSSCN2.CAB. This MSXML advisory is also unique in that it is not available on Microsoft Update, which means it cannot be obtained via Automatic Updates, Windows Update, Microsoft Update, or any enterprise management tool (WSUS Server, SMS/SCCM, Intune) or the MU Catalog.

Hi, just wondering when it will be available within SCCM? I don't see it yet (22/06/2012).
Please note that this answer is posted in two locations. The other location was updated to reflect the opposite conclusion on 6/26/2012.
Is it possible to link to the two posts to better reflect updates?
Would it be possible to get an update on the consumer front? It seems there have been reports in several places (including this page) that Automatic Update will resolve this issue. Which, according to J.C. Hornbeck is not actually the case. If users have consulted this dated info they may have an unwarranted sense of safety.
A followup to the early June press releases indicating this is continues to be an outstanding issue also seems warranted; along with a more user friendly process for end users accustomed to using Automatic Updates.
